Remembrance Day Assembly

| Comment 0

On November 11th, the Grade 7/8 class led this year’s Remembrance Day Assembly. The event began with a reading by Aeryck of In Flander’s Fields. After singing O Canada, listening to The Last Post, and observing a moment of silence, our class read a Peace Prayer while lighting symbolic candles. Then, they performed a series of frozen tableau scenes which told the story of a soldier and a soldier’s family. Some of the tableaus included soldiers signing up at a recruiting station, a battle scene, a family receiving a death notification letter, and a family mourning at a graveside. Naomi, Avery, Eileen and Ashley also sang a beautiful rendition of “The Call”. Our assembly ended with the students in each class laying poppies at the foot of a wooden cross. The Grade 7/8s would like to thank our students and teachers for participating in the assembly so thoughtfully as we paused to remember our fallen soldiers and pray for peace in our world.
