Moving Remembrance display by Spalding Academy students




Spalding Academy students have created a display to remember those that have fallen in all the wars, with a main focus on World War One casualties.

Their poppy wave represents the 16 million people that died in that war, with each poppy representing 20,000 men.

The A5 poppies that lead up the main staircase in C Block each have a name of a fallen hero from Spalding and there are also copies of original letters sent from the Battle of the Somme and the poem ‘Flanders Field’ is featured on the wall.
