On Wednesday both the junior school and the senior school held Remembrance Day assemblies featuring poetry, reflections, art work and music. Both were fitting tributes, in the words of Ariana, Grade 5, “to remember how hard all the soldiers who fought to bring us peace in the world and how they sacrificed their lives to bring us freedom like we have today.”
At the junior school assembly, a slideshow featuring poetry and art work by the Grade 3’s played during the poppy presentation.
At the senior school assembly, Master Corporal David Scrivens of the Canadian Armed Forces spoke about his experiences in Afghanistan and Bosnia. He also attended the junior school assembly. Some of the girls had questions about the dented helmet he brought along with him.
Here is the slideshow Mrs. Haylett created with the Grade 3’s:
