From Moss Side to Grenfell with love

Pupils at St Mary's C of E Primary School in Moss Side have been wearing 'green for Grenfell' to show everyone affected by last year's Grenfell fire tragedy in London that they are thinking of them.

From the smallest to the tallest, all pupils at the school were invited to show their support for Grenfell's children and for families who lost loved ones or were injured in last year's devastating fire. 

Staff and children at St Mary's also paused at midday yesterday along with the rest of the country to mark the national minute's silence.

Headteacher Jenny McGarry said: "Hearing about the appalling fire and tragic loss of life last year affected everyone - our children here in school and staff.   

"One year on we wanted to extend the hand of friendship and love to all those affected by the fire in London and beyond.  

"We wanted to show we haven't forgotten them or the 72 children and adults who lost their lives, by doing our bit, wearing 'green for Grenfell', and stopping our lessons at midday to observe the national minute's silence."
