TREE OF REMEMBRANCE: Monday 5 – Sunday 11 November

In week 8, as part of our programme of events that mark the centenary of Armistice Day, the entire school community will be invited to visit the BonBernard gallery and write a message of remembrance on a colourful paper leaf and attach it to the tree.

Messages can be names, dedications, mementos, poetry, statements of hope, wishes for peace etc. They can be personal, community based or world at large but should be related to conflict in some way. Please do feel free to pop in and place a leaf on the tree.
