Remembrance Commemorations at Olsen House, Liverpool
Olsen House School marked Remembrance Day this year with a very special display at the front of school.
Pupils made a variety of different poppies, some for the flowerbeds and some for the front door. Miniature soldier silhouettes were created by Bluebird unit.
After reading a range of war time poems, everyone decided to choose lines that they felt meant something to them or had a specific significance to the young people.
Some staff and young people constructed a silhouette of a soldier. They have named him Tommy. He was one of the four thousand volunteers who enlisted with The Kings Regiment known as The Liverpool Pals. Three thousand of the four thousand that signed up were either lost or injured in action during the fighting in France and Belgium.
Local people and neighbours near to school have commented about the display and admired the work the young people have done.
