Senior School held a very special Remembrance Day Assembly
This morning our Senior School came together to reflect on and honour the lives and sacrifices of all those who left their homes and families to serve our country. The ceremony was led by our Grade 12 girls who were joined by the rest of our Senior classes via Zoom.
The ceremony included a video of the Christmas Day truce, which allowed our students to reflect on the humanity of the soldiers who put aside their differences to share compassion and kindness with one another. There was also a heartfelt reading of the poem “In Flanders’ Fields”, reflections about Vimy Ridge, a live trumpet interpretation of “The Last Post”, and two minutes of silence. Senior School Principal Dr. MacAskill ended the ceremony by inviting all students to remember the many women and men who are defending our freedoms each and every day.
Big thanks to our Grade 12 students for organizing this beautiful ceremony, and to campus Minister Moria Schrader, Carolyn MacKenzie, and Kurtis George-Wegner for their contributions.
