POPPY APPEAL

Remembrance Day, also known as Poppy Day, commemorates the end of the First World War and honours the members of the armed forces who have lost their lives in the line of duty, those who served and continue to serve today.

The British Schools embraces and continues this British tradition by joining the Poppy Appeal every year, thus bringing our students closer to the school's cultural heritage. 

This year, the poppy appeal was a tremendous success. Senior ran out of poppies and in Junior we had a record sale.

Special thanks to everyone involved: teachers who explained their students the relevance of this symbolic flower in this time of the year, the Senior English Department that created the impressive exhibition located in the Senior entrancem the Junior Art Department that created the beautiful informative poster currently in the Junior hall, the secretaries in Junior and the Student Council in Senior for their effort in selling and promoting the use of the poppy, and to everyone who bought a poppy.
