Cockenzie Primary School, East Lothian

War Memorials Trust were contacted by P6 teachers at Cockenzie Primary School who were keen for our Learning Officer to visit the two classes following their topic on World War I and II. They requested that both classes receive a session on Remembrance and what war memorials are to help them prepare for the school Remembrance Assembly which the P6 pupils would be holding. It was hoped that the session would help pupils to consider what they had learned and relate it to the importance of war memorials. The visit to Cockenzie was carried out by our Learning Officer as part of a longer visit to Scotland.
