The Elementary School Student Council, along with Faculty Advisor Mrs. MacDougall, led a reflective and moving Remembrance Day Service this morning.
We were honoured to have the following uniformed elementary fathers and their families participate: Captain Adrian Bent, Air Force; Royal Canadian Navy, Chief Petty Officer 2nd Class, Steve Turgeon; Lieutenant Commander Mike Rodriguez, US Navy; Royal Canadian Navy, Lieutenant Stephen MacLean; and Captain (Retired) Mark Naipaul, Canadian Armed Forces and RCMP.
The 75th anniversary of D-Day was recognized, and doves were placed in recognition of this occasion and in honour of the work of today's UN Peacekeepers. The Elementary School Choir performed two songs, Take One Minute to Stand before our moment of silence, and Be a Peacemaker encouraging everyone to help maintain peace in our world. A special thank you to Stefan George-Wegner for providing piano accompaniment, as well as Curtis George-Wegner for performing a moving rendition of The Last Post on trumpet.
