Pupils will create a Remembrance Garden, which will include an array of poppies and a plaque with a message of commemoration. It also incorporates local history by working with the local newspaper to collect memories of WWI from local residents and their families. The garden will be completed by Winter 2015.
Museum Project – A small group of year 9 pupils will be having an education day about WWI at the Wrexham Museum in October 2014.
In January 2015 pupils will travel to Glyndŵr University to create a commemorative model, which will be displayed in the main corridor of the museum, in February 2015
