Breckenbrough Remembers

16 November 2014

At 11.00am on Remembrance Day, the whole of Breckenbrough School stood in silence with the rest of the UK.

In front of their installation of hand-made ceramic poppies, they first listened to the famous Laurence Binyon poem, For the Fallen. The remembrance service finished with Rupert Brooke’s ‘The soldier’.

The moving installation contained both red poppies to remember the sacrifice made by those who died in conflict and white poppies which are a symbol of grief for everyone harmed by war as well as representing the Quaker commitment to work for a world where conflicts can be resolved without violence.
