Alford Remembers on Armistice Day
All through the campus we have been taking part in activities for Remembrance.
The school helped to sell poppies for the Poppy Scotland appeal and made just over £80. We laid 100 painted poppy stones in the courtyard area to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Poppy Scotland. We also took pride in displaying our ceramic poppy which had at one time been in a display at the Tower of London.
Throughout the week the senior prefects read readings over the tannoy, thanks go to Miss Steel for her help with selecting these. CLAN classes created a display of kindness poppies which were added to a beautiful display of vinyl poppies created by Miss Bradley and Mrs Watt.
On the 11th the school led various tributes to those who gave their lives, In Flanders fields by John McCrae was read over the tannoy followed by the 2 minute silence. This was followed by a lone piper.
Our headteacher Angela Wotherspoon accompanied pupils and a piper to the Alford memorial where a wreath was laid on behalf of Alford Community Campus.
None of these tributes happen without the help of the whole school community, our thanks go to all the staff and pupils who continue to help and support us.
