On Saturday 2nd February 2019, our Centenary Poppy Path was officially opened by the Mayor of Gosport - Councillor Diane Furlong.
Children had shared their ideas for the design and four designs were chosen and combined to make the final composition. Every pupil in the school painted a cobble stone to add to the display, and remembrance bunting was created.
The Royal British Legion donated the cobbles and Gracelands Groundworks (via Taylor Wimpey) donated the materials and labour to make the design a reality.
During the ceremony, Kids of Heroes read the poem "In Flanders Fields" written by John McCrae in April 1915. The Rose and Thistle pipe and drum band played during the ceremony and Friends of Brockhurst provided refreshments.
Poppy seeds were scattered by the ECO council with Mrs Hoskins and we are looking forward to seeing the poppies grow later in the year.
Mrs Tatum's vision for a place of remembrance has come to fruition, so please take time to look at our Centenary Poppy Path when you are next in school as the area is an oasis of calm and tranquility for all pupils to share.
Our assembly theme this term has been about friendship. We have had visitors in of different faiths.
Before February half term, Brockhrust Primary school did some fundraising for Alden, who is related to Miss Warwick, trip to volunteer on the Mercy Ships. Mercy Ships provide urgent medical care, for free, to adults and children in developing nations around the world, who may not have access to these services normally. To raise funds as a school we raised £154 through holding a cake and toy sale. Alden has now set off on his trip and he will keep us updated regularly on his trip. Here are some pictures of Year 4 and the school council with Alden.
