The display sees 800 ceramic white doves, which were produced by the schools art department, positioned in a flock flowing from the top of a Remembrance tree into the school’s chapel.

The name of a family member of a child attending the school or a person from their community who died or fought in the war is written on the side of each dove

The public were invited to view the display on Sunday after the Armistice Day ceremony at Christchurch park.

However, such was the demand to see the exhibition that it will reopen on Wednesday, November 14.

The public are invited to a lecture being given by sixth from pupils at 4.45pm before then looking around the art display.
