Highfields has lined up a number of activities to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.

Students, Parers/Carers and Staff are being encouraged to create their own poppies from plastic bottles to form part of a display at the front of school, using the instructions in this link:

Miss J Tappenden, Head of History, said: “This Armistice Day marks 100 years since the end of the First World War and to mark the occasion we are planning a spectacular display of poppies, similar to that at the Tower of London, at the front of the school building.

“We hope to get as many Students, Parents/Carers and Staff involved in the project. The more poppies we have, the more spectacular the display!

“The deadline for the completion of poppies will be the morning of Friday 9th November so that construction of the display can begin on Friday afternoon and completed in time for Remembrance Sunday and for students’ arrival at school the following Monday morning.”

A full schedule of the school’s Remembrance activities can be found below:
