Pupils at The Queen’s School have been learning about the history and importance of Remembrance Sunday.

Girls at The Lower School made ceramic, paper and wire poppies to decorate the school and gardens to mark the 100th anniversary of The First World War. The installation was created to echo the poppy display at the Tower of London.

Girls at both the lower and the senior school also took part in a special National Remembrance Assembly on Monday, attended Chester Cathedral on Remembrance Sunday and held their own assembly on Tuesday November 11.

Headmistress Sarah Clark said: “It is so important for us to mark this anniversary and to also remember the sacrifices that have been made in many conflicts since then so that we can have the life and freedoms we now enjoy.”
