Lest we forget

In September 2014, a group of pupils and staff from Holy Family Catholic Primary School, Liverpool along with children from other local primary schools, visited northern France to commemorate the start of WWI.

Headteacher, Joe Welsh said: The whole experience was extremely moving and thought provoking for our children and on return to school we felt that we should commission a lasting memorial to those lost during the war.

“We enlisted the services of Welsby Memorials in Garston and they have created a beautiful white marble memorial cross which will stand at our school entrance. The Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Cllr Erica Kemp, officially unveiled the memorial.

“It is crucial that we teach the present generation about WW1, the sacrifices made by the millions who died, were maimed and those that survived with its memories. Our memorial is in recognition of the role played by all the nations that took in part WW1 the men  and women
on either side”.
