St Paul’s School always commemorates Remembrance Day which is actually on 11 November and this is when we remember about the soldiers who fought for us because they gave their lives so we could be free. The poppy is a symbol of remembrance because they were in the fields where battles took place.

We always sell poppies on Remembrance Day and this year the house captains stood on the waiting area every day before and after school selling to parents and in school we go round after lunch to each class to sell to the children. We have many different things to sell – bracelets, badges, poppies for cars as well as ordinary poppies. Because were able to sell to our parents as well as the children, we think we have collected more money this year because the collection boxes are very heavy!
