Battle of the Somme

IMG 3545North Kesteven School was honoured to be among a small number of schools invited by Paradigm Arts to take place in an event at Lincoln Castle on the 1st July to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the Battle of the Somme.

Preceding the event, an external professional from Curiosity Creators visited North Kesteven School and held a workshop with a number of Year 7 and Year 8 students assisting them in making large red poppies. These were then transported to the event on the 1st July where NKS played a part during the early morning ceremony. There was a flypast, two minutes silence, prayers, speeches and the moment that the students got to hold their poppies aloft surrounded by students from various local primary schools. All the students felt very privileged to take part, with Joshua in Year 8 saying that he would remember the moment for the rest of his life.
