Ayscoughfee Hall School suitably decorated for Remembrance observances




Youngsters at a Spalding school have joined Remembrance commemorations in the area by decorating their place of learning with poppies.

Pupils at Ayscoughfee Hall School decorated the front of the building in London Road with poppy pictures that have either been painted, coloured or collaged.

People walking past the school have also seen large poppies outside as a way of servicemen and women, as well as the wider public, who have died in wars and conflicts.

Headteacher Clare Ogden said: "The children have been thinking about the importance of Remembrance and, as part of this, they decided to decorate the front of the school with poppy pictures.

"They also put large poppies along the railings in front of the school so they could feel part of the community in remembering those who died for our country."

Earlier today, the school took part in a Remembrance assembly that was streamed live on social media.

The assembly included the reading of a peace poem and a talk about some of the soldiers who appear on the Spalding War Memorial in Ayscoghfee Gardens.

Mrs Ogden also revealed that one of her pupils, Henry Steele (six), is riding 11 miles on his bicycle this weekend in an effort to raise more than £200 for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.
