St. Patrick's Remembers...

 

To mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War, Mr Cranitch and Year 6 School Council members reminded us of the ultimate sacrifice that families from our local area gave. Holmes Road saw 8 men lose their lives, Raglan Street 6 men and in the Kentish Town area 708 men.

The children read out information about some of the soldiers and reminded the children that they were once real people walking the same streets and looking at the same buildings 100 years ago as our school community do now. 

Later in the week, Year 6 led an assembly explaining to the children  some of the events of the war and why it is important to remember not only the 18m fathers, husbands, sons, and brothers that lost their lives, but also the roles played by women during this time.

On 8th November, we received a very touching letter from a 10 year old girl living in Ontario, Canada. Rachel attends a school called St. Patrick’s like ours, and sent some Canadian poppies as a way of saying Thank you to the veterans here “so I can live in a free country like Canada”. 

Year 6 wore the Canadian poppies with pride during their assembly and will be writing back to Rachel. (See News for pictures of the Year 6 assembly) 

 

Please take time to pray for the following residents of Holmes Road, Raglan Street and Inkerman Road who lost their lives during WWI.
