Mount Carmel pupils from all year groups took a pause in their learning to pay respect and remember all who have lost their lives in service for their country on Remembrance Day. 

Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions pupils could not congregate outside as they normally would for a service of remembrance however an online service was recorded with each class playing the recording simultaneously.

The online service included reflections read by pupils and staff and a special tribute was made to the Accrington Pals from the East Lancashire Regiment compiled by History teacher Miss Mortensen.

Music teacher Miss Javaid signalled the beginning of two minutes silence playing the Last Post on a trumpet.

Pupils in all form groups coloured in a poppy and all 750 of these were put together in the shape of one large poppy making a wonderful remembrance display in the school foyer for all to see. 

Mr Livesey, Assistant Pastoral Leader Year 11 and a former Army Warrant Officer Class One who served for over 24 years placed a poppy wreath on the display in a sign of respect to the fallen.

Thank you to Miss Rushton, Curriculum Leader for Religious Education for putting this service together and to all the other staff and pupils involved.
