Boteler’s moving Service of Remembrance


IT was a moving occasion at Warrington’s Sir Thomas CE High School as the school’s annual Remembrance Service marked 100 years since the end of World War 1
A number of “Boteler Old Boys” – former students of the old grammar school, some now retired – attended the service, along with other past students and Deputy Mayor of Warrington Cllr Wendy Johnson.
Pupils from St Barnabas CE primary and St Elphins CE primary also joined in the special occasion.
In the service, led by Rev Stewart McTaggart, the school community remembered many of the “Old Boys” who fought in both wars and current conflicts. Boteler’s Student Leadership Body took responsibility for many of the readings and prayers.
To commemorate the men and women who served head of art Sam Joice designed a new section to the school’s Peace Garden and along with graphic designer Alice Roberts, painted two giant ‘”shadows” of a Land Girl and soldier.
The area was also decorated with metal poppies and plants. The poppy dress which Mr Joice created last year, made from more than 500 individual poppies made by students across all year groups, again made an appearance being worn by Year 11 student Jess Smith.
Many students attended the service with the young people who are members of uniformed organisations wearing their appropriate attire.
Moving performances were given by Year 11 student Emily Bull, school worship group Sounds From Above, and a further group of students who sang “In Flanders Field”.
