Appreciating Veterans’ Memories
- Grade 10 students get stories from the source -
 
Approximately 700 Grade 10 students from 3 GECDSB secondary schools will gather at the Serbian Centre (6670 Tecumseh Rd. E) on Monday, November 10th to hear firsthand accounts from Canadian armed forces veterans.
 
Commencing at 10:00 a.m. the students from Tecumseh Vista Academy, Riverside Secondary and W.F. Herman High School will view The Veterans’ Memories Project, a compilation of oral histories from people who served during the armed conflicts of the past 75 years. The recorded interviews preserve stories of sacrifice and survival which might otherwise have been lost to the passage of time.
 
Following the video presentation the students will have an opportunity to speak with some local veterans in person.
