OBH Remembrance Poppy Project

After many weeks of planning, preparation, painting and construction from the children, it was brilliant to be able to proudly display all of their artistic endeavours to mark the Centenary of Armistice Day. The children’s recycled bottle poppies certainly set the tone and a lovely back-drop for our Remembrance Assembly and Service. Once again we would like to thank Izzie and Charlie for their amazing ideas and also to their mum, Clare, for her time, efforts and generosity with the project. The family are responsible for instigating this amazing project and we would particularly like to thank them all for collecting, washing and prepping hundreds of bottles. It goes without saying that we are all very grateful for their time and effort. Poppies were planted and entwined into beautiful Remembrance Wreaths, garlands on the pillars and a camouflage net of poppies. It really is a testament to the children’s hard work and their enthusiasm has been a happy companion throughout the project. As always, there is a strong message behind this; that OBH thanks and remembers fallen heroes of the armed forces from conflicts past and present. We would also like to thank parents who picked a poppy to take home and donated £1 for The Royal British Legion.
