Each year, Loxford Sixth Form students distribute the iconic paper poppies throughout the school, collecting donations in return to help support the vital work which the British Legion does for the Armed Forces community. This year a group of year 12 students lead this charity work and we look forward to hearing how much money we have raised when your collection tins are counted.
Students wore the paper poppy on their chest as a symbol of Remembrance: to remember the fallen Service men and women killed in conflict.
The first Poppy Appeal was held in 1921, the founding year of The Royal British Legion. Red silk poppies, inspired by the famous First World War poem In Flanders Fields, sold out instantly and raised more than £106,000. The funds helped WW1 veterans find employment and housing after the war. The following year, the Poppy Factory was set up, employing disabled ex-Servicemen to create the poppies to sell during the appeal. Today, the factory still produces millions of poppies each year.
Tree Planting in Loxford Park
On Monday the 13th November, a group of year 7 and year 12 students went to Loxford Park to help plant maple trees to support the charity ‘Trees for Cities’. Students worked together to help dig up the soil, plant the trees and create a habitable environment for the tree to grow. Our students worked really hard and showed great team spirit , they are so proud of what they have achieved they decided to name the trees Mavis, Matilda and Mable. Our students are really looking forward to being able to see their trees grow over the coming years. Tree planting will be happening throughout the months of November and December at Loxford Park and welcome the local residents to come along and help. This weekend local residents are invited to come along to help plant tress under the supervision of a local charity called “Trees for Cities”. They will also be providing some snacks to keep you going and expert instruction on how to plant the trees. The aim is to plant many trees to improve the landscape of the park along with Redbridge as a whole. So if you fancy having a go, why not pop along to Loxford Park at the weekend.
