Annually our School hosts solemn and heartfelt Remembrance Day ceremonies to honour and remember those who served and sacrificed their lives so that we may live in peace. This week both the Elementary and Senior Schools hosted beautiful services.
The Senior School ceremony was led by Barat Academy’s Grade 12 students and teacher Ms. McKay while the Elementary School’s ceremony was led by the Student Council and Ms. MacDougall. Both ceremonies included prayers, music, poems, a live interpretation of “The Last Post” by Kurtis George-Wegner, and two minutes of silence. We were pleased to welcome special guests Captain Mark Naipaul, Chief Petty Officer Second Class Stephen Morris, Lieutenant Commander Mike Rodriguez, and Sailor First Class Jonathan Kester to the Elementary service. And, we enjoyed the Elementary School Choir’s performance, especially their version of “In Flanders Fields”.
