11th Remembrance Day

Our trip to the memorial, at St.Mary’s Church, has been a long standing tradition at Tollesbury School, one that we wanted to continue this year. So, with a little bit of planning, we managed to make our annual visit. In their classes, the whole school visited the Church and many of the children laid their posies on the memorial. Some classes were greeted by Reverend Sarah, who said a few words as the children stood around the memorial. We were very privileged, this year, to have Mr and Mrs Lyne accompany the classes at the church. They both attended in their military uniforms. Thank you so much for being a part of our day.

We miss you all
