HISTORY CLUB COMMEMORATES THE CENTENARY YEAR

armistice day1

Da iawn to all the History club members who have worked so hard over the last several weeks and played a vital role in commemorating the centenary year here at Maesteg. Pupils organised several activities including a WW1 quiz for all classes to raise awareness of today's remembrance. Additionally, pupils sang 'a hundred years' beautifully during the armistice service, which is an adapted version of a song which they changed the lyrics to show empathy with the soldiers who went off to fight during the First World War. On top of this these pupils have been selling poppies over the last week and held a fundraising event today at break time; which included a raffle, cakes and biscuits being sold, plus games. In total from today's fundraising at break time a fantastic £128.50 has been made!
