Remembrance Day

- students & staff pay tribute-

Each year school communities throughout the Greater Essex County District School Board commemorate Remembrance Day with learning activities connected to the curriculum and ceremonies to honour the men and women who have served in conflicts around the world. 

In the school days leading up to November 11th teachers use art, music, literacy and social studies to build students' knowledge of and connection to the sacrifices of those who have served in the armed forces. In most cases, students, working with staff members, do the planning for the school's Remembrance Day ceremony.

On Friday, November 11th the public is welcome to attend ceremonies at the public school in their area. Please check with the school office for the exact time and location.

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