Lest we forget

Students and staff at St Hilda’s Church of England High School commemorated the centenary of the outbreak of World War One by holding a special WWI day.
Everyone was encouraged to attend school in WWI themed outfits. Pupils followed their usual timetabled lessons, but each subject was taught with a WWI theme.
In geography, classes solved a mystery relating to changing borders at the end of WWI and in science, classes made gas masks and looked into the weapons of war, the PE department had pupils marching in formation.
War songs were heard coming from the music room and by the end of the day an art exhibition was installed in the foyer.
Even the lunch menu had a WWI theme and the dining room was decorated accordingly. Feedback following the event was really positive and students gained an insight into many different aspects of war.
