Alsop High School students have created a film for classroom based Collective Worship to enable young people to commemorate Armistice Day. The film is online to for schools to use.

The special assembly is led by students, and the Rev Fiona Pennie, Interim Priest, at Walton Parish Church. During the film, Alsop students recall the tale of the Walton Pals. These were a group of friends, who were members of the Walton Church Young Men’s Bible Study Class. During World War One, led by Percy Tucker, they joined the Liverpool King’s Regiment. They all joined up together and went off to fight on the Western Front in France. They fought together during the Battle of the Somme and unfortunately, they died together. The name of Percy J. Tucker appears on the Thiepval Memorial in France.

Mr Peter Bull , Head of RE comments:

“This film is so poignant and moving. Our students have achieved something wonderful to be shared with schools across Liverpool and beyond. We it is useful for staff in other schools as they prepare to teach about Remembrance Sunday.”

Mr Paul Smalley, Senior Lecturer at Edge Hill University comments:
