Remembrance Day Heading.jpg 
 ​
 
November 11 will mark Remembrance Day, which is a day to give us the opportunity to pause and recognize the unselfish acts of our fellow Canadians in allowing us to live in a peaceful, democratic and free country. This truly is a gift which many of us take for granted. Further, with the privilege of freedom comes responsibility. We encourage our students to see themselves as peace keepers and as agents of peace and goodness in their families, their classrooms, the school yard and the community.
 
Why Remember?
 
We must remember. If we do not, the sacrifice of those one hundred thousand Canadian lives will be meaningless. They died for us, for their homes and families and friends, for a collection of traditions they cherished and a future they believed in; they died for Canada. The meaning of their sacrifice rests with our collective national consciousness; our future is their monument.
