Wrexham secondary school creates unique memorial to mark WW1 Centenary

A Wrexham secondary school has created a unique memorial to commemorate the Centenary of WW1 thanks to its students.

The history department at St Joseph’s Catholic and Anglican High School wanted to create a special way to mark 100 years since the end of the First World War.

Mrs Jones, a teacher at the school, organised that every pupil in St. Joseph’s was given the opportunity to create a poppy to be part of a whole school remembrance display.

She said: “As a school community we wanted to say our own Thank You to the First World War generation, all who served, sacrificed and changed our world.

“We found our own way to recognise the incredible contributions of an entire generation.

“As a faith school, we recognised the gospel values of service, courage, sacrifice and tolerance shown by those who gave their lives for us.”
