11698434_10206357576111790_1952088822448313835_n Ashmore NurseryThis morning at 11.00am I spent my two minutes silence at Ashmore Park Nursery. The meeting I had there this morning had over run a little.

So I joined the Nursery School Children along with staff to take part in the 2 minute silence that the children were leading. It was a revelation as 3 year olds honoured the silence perfectly, they were just great!

This morning they were involved in projects that related to Poppies and the significance of Poppies! 800810_poppiesBelieve me Parents you would be so proud of your children as they asked teachers and educators  the most piercing questions about soldiers and the significance of Poppies.

I am so proud of the Ashmore Park Nursery School. The School works hard creating the right environment for our youngest children to be educated within, always innovative and always education relevant to issues that shape the World we live in.

In just two short minutes I witnessed a very different Armistice Day, to the ones’ I have taken part  in, in the Past. I was amazed at how children so young could act so grown up. It was a brilliant – Just brilliant act of simple Remembrance, then back to reasons why it was held.  I am so proud of our Ashmore Park Nursery School.
