Flowers of the Forest

'Flowers of the Forest' is the name of the project pupils at Perth Academy are participating in which will commemorate all of the names on our school war memorial. Our aim is to have a short service on the day (or close to if school holidays fall at this time) that the soldier fell in the first world war, 100 years on.

We invite everyone from the community to attend these ceremonies, all that we ask is that you could let us know in advance by contacting the school and report to reception on arrival.
