GHOST soldiers have been appearing in Sheldon School as part of their World War I Armistice centenary commemorations.

This week all students at the Chippenham secondary school are having assemblies about the centenary and pupils taking the role of ‘ghost soldiers’ in uniform have been appearing aound the school. They represent the soldiers who were the last to die in the war, and their identities will be revealed during the school's Remembrance Service on Friday.

Every student in the school has made an individual poppy, made into wreaths for each year group to lay during the service. A Japanese Red Maple Tree will be planted in a new memorial garden and the service will be attended by the Royal British Legion and local army regiments.

Sheldon students have also been involved with creating poppies and tapestries for the Chippenham Town’s commemoration too.

The school's projects were supported by a grant from Chippenham Borough Lands.
