Reception children at Brackenfield School in Harrogate, have planted a rose garden in commemoration of their hero Captain Sir Tom Moore.

Throughout the Autumn term pupils at the leading independent school closely followed Captain Sir Tom’s journey, admiring his sheer determination and all-round positivity.

In awe of the national treasure, the children used his inspirational quote ‘Tomorrow will be a good day’, as their daily mantra.

Pupils wanted to commemorate Captain Sir Tom by planting a rose bed in his name with specially chosen ‘Captain Tom’ red roses, a variety of the flower named in memory of the war veteran.

Headmaster Joe Masterson said: “The pupils thoroughly enjoyed creating our new rose bed, providing a space for our entire school to reflect and a fitting tribute.”
