Ten girls from second and third form, accompanied by Ms Erskine and Dr Haire, went to a special event hosted by Never Such Innocence at the Ulster Museum. Lady Lucy French oversaw proceedings, and explained that she had founded the organisation to commemorate the men and women of the Great War. Pupils from Strathearn took to the stage to recite first world war poetry, which included a number of original pieces. Strathearn pupils will be entering their poems into the global competition, which will see the winners published in a special hard-backed commemorative book in 2018 to mark the end of hostilities 100 years before. The girls had the chance to talk to students from other schools who had been learning about the Great War and were able to reflect on the Weeping Window poppy installation at the museum, which will be in Belfast until the beginning of December.
