Bridge of Don Remembers

The Schools and Community Service of Remembrance took place on Friday 2 November at St Columba’s Church.  The school was represented by pupils from first year, second year, third year and the school choir.

The photo below shows pupils from S1 – 3  beside the poppy art installation created by our pupils in S1.  At their feet are the wreaths laid by a representative from each of the nine schools and the British Legion during the service.  The art installation will be on display at our school assemblies taking place in school the week beginning 5 November.
