World Ward 1 Exhibition 

On Saturday 10th November the Art department, in conjunction with Christ Church Haydock, held a World War I exhibition to remember the Armistice Centenary. Year 8 students have been working hard since summer to produce a variety of art works, including soldiers' marching boots, dazzle ships and war bunting. During workshops the Art department worked with our local primary schools and Lansbury Bridge students to create war horses with flags from commonwealth countries that fought in WW1 and stained glass window soldier silhouettes and poppies. 

Historical information about Haydock soldiers and WW1 were also displayed, along with a period tea room that gave visitors a relaxing environment in which to enjoy free refreshments. A big thank you must go to Neve Cheetham who served the refreshments all day on Saturday. 

Over 150 visitors came to the exhibition, and various primary school groups attended and took part in the activities included. We must thank the Armed Forces Covenant Trust who gave us ten of the “There but not There“ soldier silhouettes to represent the space left behind by soldiers who did not return. 

On Sunday 11th November Sandra Morris, our Youth Pastor from Christ Church, was part of the peoples' march at the Cenotaph in London and laid a Commonwealth wreath made by Haydock students. The wreath recognised men from commonwealth countries that had been forgotten and never properly recognised for their war efforts. 

Year 8 students visited the exhibition on Wednesday 14th November and extended their historical knowledge of WW1 by researching answers to questions from the exhibition.
