Remembrance invite for pupils

Year 9 teacher, Miss Rogers and four students from The Lord Derby Academy, Huyton, were invited to attend the service of remembrance in Huyton.

The Mayor and other dignitaries representing the armed forces, British Legion and Fire Service, joined Year 9 pupils Ben Hearn, Chloe Ball, Casey Regan and Connor Butler.

Students laid a poppy wreath and stood alongside the Mayor as they observed a two-minute silence for those who fell in World War One and all other conflicts since.

This was particularly poignant, as Year 9 has been studying the causes and consequences of World War One in their history lessons.

Miss Rogers said: “I would like to thank our four representatives who were excellent ambassadors for the school, and Knowsley Borough council for inviting us to this moving event.”
