Wishford School Remembers

KS2 pupils from Great Wishford C of E VA Primary School filed quietly into St Giles’ church on 11 November for a service to remember those from the village who died in the two World Wars.  The doves that they had made, together with the hymns ‘Peace perfect peace’ and ‘Make me a channel of your peace’, gave away the service’s underlying message of hope that one day the world will be at peace.  Ivy Henstridge and Ivan Gurd read ‘In Flanders Field’ and Jo Jo Barratt ‘For the Fallen’ – all three pupils evoking so well the terrible sense of loss conveyed by those poems.  Peregrine Falcons class had written a prayer with the response ‘God give us peace’, a quietly reflective end to the service.
