We are delighted with the coverage, in The Shields Gazette, that tells of our wonderful art installation that is part of our Armistice commemorations.

School would like to thank everyone who has donated bottles and knitted poppies to make the installation so spectacularly stunning.  Mrs Ramshaw’s idea and hard work has certainly paid off.  Thanks also to Mr Atkinson for rigging the structure and putting holes into so many poppies!  Also thanks to Miss Ho who gave up her time to paint and hammer in holes!

    • Where will we put it next year?
      Delighted that the There But Not There installations have also arrived to complete the vision. Hopefully more thoughtful discussions generated.
