Christ College is running its own poppy appeal to children at St Nicholas. Mrs Kilpatrick, who is the school archivist, has asked for children in St Nicholas to contribute individually made poppies to an exhibition of the First World War commemoration project at Christ College. In the exhibition there will be a display of the remembrance dispatches posted to commemorate each Old Breconian who died as a result of the conflict as well as archival material that is shared each year with our Year 9 pupils in advance of their visit to the Battlefields of Flanders. The exhibition will be open on Old Breconian Day on May 7th and in the last week of term and Prize Day for pupils and parents.
Mrs Kilpatrick would like to enhance the installation by asking children in the juniors to create a poppy for each of the 64 Old Breconians who died. The poppies can be made out of any material/media as long as they end up being roughly the same size as the poppies we wear for Remembrance Day. We are confident that the imagination and creativity shown by pupils and their families in recent events will ensure that we have a rich variety of poppies to sit alongside the profiles of the individuals. The deadline for poppies is Wednesday 3rd May and pupils may make more than one if preferred.
The children will have a chance to see their efforts at the end of term when they will visit the exhibition in Big School. We hope that you agree that this is a wonderful opportunity to be involved in something so valuable and closely connected to our own current topic of WW2, whilst remembering those who came to Christ College and gave their lives so bravely.
If you do have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
