Seafield Primary School pupils enjoy visit from Poppyscotland’s travelling museum bus
Poppyscotland’s bus called Bud pulled in to Seafield Primary School in Elgin and pupils from four classes were invited on board the 18-tonne truck travelling Scotland as part of the charity’s learning work.
The charity provides support to former and serving armed forces personnel, and their families.
The visit by its interactive mobile museum was organised by Seafield’s Military Families’ Pupil Support Assistants, Emma Connors and Catrina Taylor, who support the children of armed forces personnel attending the school.
The children listened to stories, made paper poppies, and learned what the charity has been doing to support service personnel, veterans, and their families since 1921, following the Great War.
Morven Snodgrass, Head Teacher at Seafield Primary School, said Bud the bus was a very welcome visitor.
“The pupils clearly learned a great deal on board Bud and this was a great interactive opportunity. With a high percentage of forces families attending the school, we provide a wide range of supports, but this was a great opportunity for all learners to get further insight into what that means for their service families’ peers and also for veterans in our community. We’re very grateful to Poppyscotland for including Seafield Primary on its travels, it’s a visit that won’t be forgotten.”
