On Monday November 11, 2013, students at Vincent Massey Secondary took time to remember the many previous and continuing sacrifices made by Canada’s soldiers in defence of freedom.

Students and teachers worked together to commemorate this special day by planning junior and senior assemblies, with the theme of ‘Remembering the Past and Hoping for the Future’.   Concentration was placed on Canada’s further commitment to present peacekeeping missions, with student speaker Delaney Brausse sharing her personal experience with her father currently serving in Afghanistan.

Remembrance Day at Massey serves as an active reminder to us all, not only of the valuable gift of freedom we experience on a daily basis, but also of the thanks that we need to give to those who have sacrificed for us all.  In remembering the past and recognizing the present, we gain the knowledge and insights necessary for a better future.

A special thank you is extended to Mr. Garlick and Mr. Trudell for the planning and administration of commemorative activities.
