PUPILS from Pembroke Dock’s St Mary's School have been paying their respects to The Fallen and helping hardship charity PATCH.

Pupils recently attended the Pembroke Dock Remembrance Day Service to lay a poppy wreath on behalf of the staff, pupils and governors, to remember those who died in battle.

The pupils had been working hard creating poppies and producing lots of work linked to Remembrance Day. At 11am, on the 11th day, of the 11th month, all of the pupils and staff gathered in the school hall to join in with a two-minute’s silence to remember all of those that fought for our country.

Pupils also presented PATCH with a collection of tins and packets of food that had been kindly donated by parents and staff.

The pupils had been collecting the food as part of their harvest celebrations, which had taken place before half term.

Acting Head teacher Cheryl McNally said: “We are grateful to everyone for their generous donations for PATCH including Tesco's who donated a selection of fruit and vegetables. The whole school came together to celebrate Harvest and to remember how fortunate we are.”
