Remembering and Honouring All Veterans
Thank you to all staff and students for your participation in our Remembrance Day ceremony. Thank you to the grade 7 team and their students for hosting, Deanna & our Aboriginal class for honouring our Aboriginal Veterans and all Veterans with the Warrior Song, Mr. Biln and the Cadets for honouring us with your values of teamwork, leadership and citizenship and Ms. Wallace and the Grade 9 Band for setting the somber, reflective mood for such a successful event. While it is good practice to reflect on all that we are grateful for everyday, this ceremony gives us reason to pause and remember. May peace be with you and your families.
