To commemorate Remembrance Day, students and staff at John Port Spencer Academy prepared a wonderful display of poppies on the side of Hathersage building. There were also a number of life size silhouettes of army figures around the site. The names of the 34 men from Etwall who lost their lives in the First World War also had their names in the display.
As always, there was a two minute silence across the school on Friday 9th November at 11am accompanied by ‘The Last Post’ played by students.
John Port helped St Helen’s Church with contributions for the WW1 exhibition. Mrs Hodgson, along with James and Josh, also played ‘The Last Post’ and ‘Reveille’ during the service at St Helen’s on Sunday.
