Remembrance Poppies

Last Sunday some of our students, including Arslan and Qasim, helped to mark the end of the First World War at a wreath laying in the Corporation Park Gardens of Remembrance.

This took place after a packed service at Blackburn Cathedral. Rt Rev Julian Henderson, the Bishop of Blackburn, led the service and recalled the toll of two World Wars:

“We bring to mind huge numbers around the world who died in war and conflict and terrorism since and we remember those who continue to suffer as the result of these wars.”

There was a huge turnout for this Remembrance, with an estimated 1,200 in the Cathedral and 3,000 at Corporation Park.

In support of Armistice, Miss Leake from Blackburn Central High School made her famous glittery poppies. These were sold to staff and students for £1 each, with all money going towards The Royal British Legion.
