November is a significant time of year when our classrooms are filled with heartfelt discussions and lessons about the meaning of Remembrance day. Students took the time to write reflections and poems, as well as create beautiful poppy artwork to commemorate the men and women, past and present, who sacrificed their lives and fought for our freedom.

On November 10th, Mountain View campus held our annual Remembrance day assembly where we witnessed many powerful performances. Grade one students did a wonderful job singing the Canadian national anthem and Mr. Doucette’s grade two class gave a sincere performance of the song Give Me Love, by George Harrison. We also saw a beautiful and moving performance of In Flanders Fields by Mrs. Haziri’s and Mrs. Tyrrell’s grade three classes. Finally, the grade four students showcased their impressive writing skills as students from Mr. Zaidi’s, Ms. Hutchinson’s, and Mr. Goodman’s classes read their own original poems about the importance of Remembrance day.

Thank you to the Remembrance day committee, Mr. Doucette and Mrs. Hasni, for organizing such a successful and meaningful event.
