PUPILS at Ysgol Emmanuel in Rhyl, commemorated Armistice Day with a special Remembrance assembly for parents.

The school’s year five pupils delivered the event on Wednesday 11th November. Richard Kendrick, the Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal coordinator for North Wales, was invited to the school to observe the assembly and collect donations from the pupils and staff. All classes in the school had learned about the reasons for Remembrance and Armistice Day and created poppy themed work including painted pebbles, poppy wreaths and poems.

Richard said: “It was ever so nice to be invited to see the Remembrance assembly. The children were brilliant. I want to give huge thanks to the pupils and staff for raising money for the Poppy appeal. This year has been so hard to raise money due to Covid 19. It’s great that schools are helping out.”
