Broadford Primary School rose to the occasion of marking the 100th anniversary of the end of World War 1 with an event which was rich in meaning and full of participation. We began in church, with hymns and reflections, mainly in Gaelic. Then everyone was invited back to the school for more songs, dances and a drama depicting life in the trenches, choreographed by class teacher, Shona Nicholson. Around the walls children who had relatives who were veterans had posted the results of research into their war records. Refreshments inspired by the era were provided, before adjourning once more to the village war memorial, where a display of home-made poppies was placed up the bank which leads to the memorial. There, Head Teacher Stephen Atkins concluded proceedings with a final reflection. What a brilliant example of a how a school can educate and inspire a whole community!
