​Remembrance Day

- students honour service –

Remembrance Day will be observed throughout the Greater Essex County District School Board today with in-school ceremonies and attendance at community events.

The purpose and the importance of honouring veterans, current service members and the sacrifice of all who risked or gave their lives to preserve freedom is a significant part of learning in November. Many of the ceremonies today are organized and led by the students themselves.

In addition, a number of GECDSB students will be participating in Remembrance Day activities in their communities, including at the Windsor Cenotaph and the annual Students and Veterans Luncheon at the Serbian Centre, which begins at 11:30 a.m.

​For more information contact Public relations officer Scott Scantlebury @ 519-255-3200 ext. 10224 or 519-995-5797.
