Veterans' Week 2016

 
Every November 11th, Canadians across the country pause in silence to remember the men and women who served our country during wartime – past and present. The Department of Canadian & World Studies continued this observance by organizing various events to commemorate Veterans’ Week, November 5 to 11, 2016.  For example, in association with the Royal Canadian Legion, Dante students graciously made donations to the Poppy Campaign. Our Poppy Campaign canvassers collected $487.60 towards the Poppy Campaign. Thank you to the Dante student body and staff for their generosity! Moreover, a Remembrance Day student assembly was organized and it included contributions from the Canadian & World Studies Department and the Arts Department--in particular, from the drama and multimedia classes. A special thank you to Ms. Reedy, Mr. Labriola and all the students that participated in the assembly!
 
This year we recognized the 100th Anniversaries of the Battle of Beaumont-Hamel and the Battle of the Somme as well as the upcoming 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge, just to name a few. In commemorating this event, Grade 10 History students completed student projects on various battles. Grade 10 students also wrote "Postcards for Peace" to express messages of thanks to those who served Canada in times of war, military conflict and peace.  Through our Veterans' Week 2016 events and activities, Dante students remembered and recognized the sacrifices of the men and women of the Canadian Armed Forces who have fought to defend both their nation and the peace and peoples of our world.
