Last week representatives of the Royal British Legion, Mr Al Baker and Mr Tom Parry visited Ysgol John Bright to present students at the school with wreaths of poppies and wooden crosses. They were received by Abbie Brown, Emma Nugent and Ruby Bannister of Year 9.
The wreaths will be laid as part of the memorial service at the Menin Gate in Yprès in Belgium.
The visit to Belgium has been organised by the school’s History Department and will take place from 10th to 12th February this year. It will include visits to major battlefields around Ypres in Belgium and the Somme in France. The visit promises to be a memorable and thought provoking experience for all involved.
