Remembrance Day Assembly

Good evening!

The school will be having a Remembrance Day Assembly tomorrow at 11:00am.  Everyone is welcome.  Please come and join the school as we commemorate our fallen heroes and pay tribute to all those that made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. 

DID YOU KNOW?

Most people don poppies about two weeks before Remembrance Day. But you shouldn’t be sporting them in the days afterwards, although many do, thinking it’s a sign of respect. The poppy is actually supposed to be left on the tomb at the place where the ceremony is held, a final sign of respect for the fallen soldiers who never came home.  Or they can be worn for the remainder of the day. But once November 12th comes, the poppies should be gone. (Source: CityNews article)
