REMEMBRANCE DAY

 

History Pupils at Cefn Saeson have been making origami poppies to commemorate the men who lived, fought and died for our freedom. The display outside the Main Office is based on a 2014 art installation which saw the Tower of London’s moat filled with over 888,246 ceramic poppies, each representing a British or Colonial fatality in the First World War.

During the First World War much of the conflict took place in Western Europe. Countryside that had once been beautiful was devastated by bombs and lengthy battles. The landscape turned from green fields to mud, bleak and barren land where nothing would grow. Bright red poppies however somehow survived and thrived in the chaos and destruction around them. They grew in their thousands, turning the muddy landscape into a sea of red.

Remembrance 100 years ago reflected the harsh reality that almost every family and community in Britain had been directly and very personally affected by the First World War. Remembrance in Britain today reflects many of the changes brought about 100 years ago. It also connects those who have died and been affected by the many confits such as those in Iraq and Afghanistan. Remembrance is something that touches people of all ages and backgrounds, faiths and political opinions.

On Friday, November 9th, staff and pupils will be observing a minute silence to remember the men and women who lived, fought and died in order to give us our freedom.

CEFN SAESON GAINS UNICEF BRONZE RIGHTS RESPECTING SCHOOL AWARD

We are very proud to announce that we have gained the Unicef Bronze Rights Respecting School Award. We are working hard to gain our silver #UNICEF #children’s commissioner for wales award.

At Cefn Saeson we are working to become a school where children’s rights are at the heart of our ethos and culture, to improve well-being and to develop every child’s talents and abilities to their full potential.

What is Unicef?
Unicef is the world’s leading organisation working for children and young people and their rights. In 1989, governments across the world agreed that all children have the same rights by adopting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). These rights are based on what a child needs to survive, grow, participate and fulfil their potential.

How will it impact our pupils?
Cefn Saeson pupils will learn about their rights by putting them into practice every day. A Rights Respecting School models rights and respect in all its relationships.

Moving forward…
We really hope that you will be able to support our school on our journey towards becoming a Unicef UK Rights Respecting Silver School. For further information about Rights Respecting Schools please visit: www.unicef.org.uk/rrsa
