Theresa May MP and Local School Pupils attend First World War Centenary Event
- Jan 30, 2018
On Friday 19 January school children from five different schools joined Theresa and high-ranking military officials to mark the centenary of the First World War. Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence hosted Never Such Innocence (NSI) at the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, in Marlow Road, Maidenhead.
NSI aims to engage children with the First World War and is inviting 9 to 16-year-olds to enter a competition by submitting poetry or art inspired by the events of the war.
“It was a pleasure attending this event and I was very grateful to be invited.
Everyone there made the day very special and it was especially wonderful to see how much the children made of the day as well as listening to the poems that two of the students had written for the occasion. We also heard some great signing and they all did a brilliant job.”
