Remembrance Day

On November 11, our boys hosted a Remembrance Day Service to show our respect for the brave men and women in our armed forces who have served - and our serving now - in times of war and peace, and to honour those who made the ultimate sacrifice.  

During this special day of remembrance, we found many ways to pay tribute to all the men and women who have and continue to serve our country. The SK boys created beautiful poppy artwork to commemorate the day; the Grade 4s shared their learning of sacrifice and heroism with poetry; the Grade 5 boys accompanied by Colton’s Dad in uniform, sold poppies at the gate; and the Grade 6 boys filmed a touching Remembrance Day Tableau Tribute. 

We wish to thank Mr. Ian Robinson, former Principal of The Sterling Hall School, for sharing with us a reading of ‘In Flanders Fields’ from the Hamilton Cemetery. He recorded this special moment at the Robinson’s family plot near his grandfather Major Lionel Charles Sey’s Military Headstone.

It is our hope that we all wear our poppies with pride and gratitude today. It is a reminder of the peace we have been gifted and the great sacrifice made by others to ensure the world around us is a better place. We keep this in our heart today and always.
