FOR YOUR TOMORROW WE GAVE OUR TODAY
Year 11 students on our Alternative Provision course in The Lodge have been learning about, and paying their respects to, more than 9,000 members of the Worcestershire Regiment who lost their lives in the First World War.
They have designed their own tribute to The Fallen by making 90 poppies out of clay to represent all the precious lives lost in battle.
The poppies they have made will be boxed up and preserved until the Centenary of the end of World War 1 is commemorated in November 2018. The poppies will then be sold to raise funds for the Royal British Legion which is The Lodge’s chosen charity. The tribute was visited on Monday by Fiona George, Evesham’s Poppy Appeal Co-ordinator and her daughter, Hannah, an ex-student of Prince Henry’s, who has been a poppy collector since she was in the pram!
Jill Stones, The Lodge Manager,said “When Mrs Aitken (Head of Art) suggested the poppy-making project, the students threw themselves into it as they wanted to find a way to show their respects to all those who sacrificed their lives.”
