Laying Wreaths: MRIS Yr 2 students Zoe and Van pay their respects at the MRIS Remembrance Day service.

The whole school paused to remember lives lost in war during MRIS’s

Remembrance Day ceremony today.

Organised by the Year 5/6 class, the service included readings from the class, flying the flag at half mast,  and the Last Post.

Students wore their grandparent’s medals and laid hand-made wreaths under the flag pole.

Year 5/6

teacher, Julie Lockyer said the  class had studied “The Poppy” by Andrew Plant  who visited the school last year and focused on the

virtues of Respect and Gratitude.
