Poppy Appeal

At St John Fisher we strive to support our local community and parish and those less fortunate than ourselves. One way that we did this was our 'Poppy' appeal. For Remembrance Day we supported and collected for the Royal British Legion. The pupils and staff at St John Fisher got together to demonstrate support for those who have fought and lost their lives in the past and for those fighting in our world today. Pupils spent their money on poppies and bracelets, slap bands and pins. We were delighted to raise £808.18p! Thank you all for your kind donations. 

We also held a 2 minutes silence at 11 o'clock, we listened to 'The Last Post' and we all paused to reflect and remember those who have lost their lives and those currently fighting a war in the present day.  Each child made a poppy and we laid them and two wreaths in the front garden of the school. 

This is one of many ways, that St John Fisher demonstrate love and kindness to others, following the teachings of Jesus Christ.
