Driffield School & Sixth Form Remembers

As a mark of remembrance during this centenary year, students of all year groups were given a paper poppy and asked to write a message of thanks to those who fought for our country during the war, and those who worked to keep our country safe and moving back at home.

Backgrounds were then made by Year 9 Art students, to depict scenes of war and peace, and were then furnished with the poppies. Two fantastic displays of the finished work are currently on display – one in the school’s ACE building and a second in All Saints Church, Driffield.

During week commencing 5th November 2018, all houses have had an assembly based on remembrance. House and vice Captains then visited form rooms selling poppies to staff and students for a small donation.

On Friday 9th November, two talented Year 13 student trumpeters then played the last post - the first time in West building during form time, then just before 11am in East and North Buildings, followed by a 2 minute silence. Mr Fisher, Assistant Headteacher, said “Thank you to all students for taking part in the remembrance activities and helping us to commemorate all those involved in World War One”.
