Peace Commemoration cross installed

December 15, 2018

We spent much of the Michaelmas term commemorating in various ways the centenary of the end of the First World War. One of our major projects, run by the Art Department, was the making and installing of a large commemorative cross, decorated with poppies made from the fingerprints of all the girls and staff in the school, and the inscription ‘war has made us wise’, from a poem by Siegfried Sassoon. This cross now hangs on a wall in the Chapel as a permanent reminder of all that the War has come to mean to us.
