Ghosts of War Poetry Workshop

Ghosts of War Poetry Workshop

A reminder of the sacrifices other made for us

It was another memorable and poignant visit to the Ghosts of War poetry workshop at Edinburgh Castle today; 7L had a fascinating few hours spending time in the war memorial Chapel at the centre of the castle, exploring the war museum and also looking at personal gifts and artefacts from those who died in World War 1. This all led to writing a poem and all the children produced some really thoughtful pieces of writing by the end of the afternoon.

With the centenary of the Armistice approaching, it was another reminder of the sacrifices made by others, and of the reasons why we remember. A special thank you to Ken and Lorna from the education department who led the sessions so enthusiastically once again; they have looked after us for 15 years now, and it is always one of the highlights of the year.
