Ashton primary school pupils mark Armistice Day 2021

Pupils at an Ashton primary school have been engaging in many different activities surrounding the theme of Remembrance to mark Armistice Day. 

Like the rest of the nation, St Peter's CE Primary School fell silent for a period of silence at 11am on Thursday (11 November) to commemorate all those who died in military conflicts. 

The Oxford Street school's Trinity Club led a special Collective Worship via Zoom, which was attended virtually by Karen Morris of Manchester Diocese, residents from Broughton Nursing Home - a veteran’s care village in Salford, and also local nursing home Moss Cottage.

The school has close connections with Moss Cottage and Broughton House, as well as the Royal British Legion (RBL). 

During the worship, the school's Trinity Club - which meets weekly and is based upon bible study - led special prayers and shared information about the work that the RBL does to support the Armed Forces community.

Year Six pupils and Mr Derbyshire performed "It's a Long Way to Tipperary", "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" and also the school's Mustard Seed song.  

Across the school, pupils devised prayer spaces linked to the school's Mustard Seed Vision and Remembrance, as well as taking part in poppy art activities.

Pupils also attended school in red and have been purchasing poppies to help raise funds for the RBL.
