BISS Puxi Remembers

30 October 2014

11 November is Remembrance Day, during which we honour those who died in the Great War of 1914-18 and all wars since.

  • Remembrance Day at the British international School Shanghai, Puxi

The red corn poppy worn during the weeks leading up to Remembrance Day in the UK and many Commonwealth countries signifies support for the Royal British Legion, an organisation that since 1921 has been trying to improve the living condition of war veterans. 

This year, poppies are available at the reception desk of both schools and can be bought for a donation of 10RMB. We encourage the children to purchase and wear poppies during this period of remembrance.  Please give generously. 

On Remembrance Day in primary, Ralph Gawthorpe from 6B will sound the Last Post and the Year 4 children will sing A Song for Peace on the steps of the Gallery at 8:25am. In secondary there will be a special whole school assembly. The secondary students will observe 2 minutes of silence on the day and in primary they will do this within their assemblies that week.

What is the Poppy Appeal?

The poppy recalls the fields of poppies on the Western Front during the First World War and is a powerful symbol of remembrance for those who died in service.  By giving to the Poppy Appeal, we remember the dead of the two world wars and other conflicts around the globe.

The Royal British Legion’s mission is to provide welfare, comradeship, representation and remembrance to veterans.  They help families to cope with the loss of a loved one, provide home modifications to those adapting to independent living, run recovery centres for injured personnel and provide residential care.
