Staff and students at Poltair School marked the centenary of World War One with assemblies of reflection and a two minute silence on Tuesday. Students Ben Bassett and Alice Eade spoke of their experiences on a recent extra curricular trip to the First World War battlefields, and Mr Joe Matta from the Royal British Legion gave students and staff an informative and thought-provoking presentation on the history of the British Legion and the importance of the Poppy Appeal.
Students involved in the Air and Army Cadets wore their uniforms with pride, marching into the assembly. A poster campaign including details of the relatives of staff who have been involved in conflict further provoked thought and discussion around the school.
