Principal's Message

Remembrance Day Matters

Remembrance Day matters at Bridlewood School.  Many of you were fortunate enough to attend our Assembly, and you know what I am speaking of.  On Friday, November 10, our Grade 4 and Grade 5 students along with our choir led us through our Remembrance Day Assembly.  All students, those who performed and those that observed,  demonstrated a deep and profound respect for the servicemen and women that have devoted their lives to the protection of our freedoms.
Our assembly began and concluded with the students in Mr. Bhachu's, Mrs. Barge's and Mrs. Faulkner's classes offering reflections on war, conflict, sacrifice and freedom.  Their writing was very detailed and served to activate my senses as I began to hear, see and feel what mattered to our grade 4 students about Remembrance Day.  Remembrance Day assemblies often include "In Flanders Fields," however this year our grade 5s shared it with a slight twist. They shared a beautiful and meaningful rendition of the famous poem authored by Canadian John McCrae brought to life through music and song.  I am sure I was not the only one in the crowd quietly singing along.  Our choir, a  non-auditioned group of students in grades 4, 5 and 6 shared the song Peace I Leave With You as arranged by Donald Moore.   This piece is based on a two part canon composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791).  Their performance was so well positioned in our assembly and led us into our moment of silence with vivid reflections for each one of us.
At Bridlewood, Remembrance Day extended well beyond our assembly as I know each class explored what matters about Remembrance Day in their own unique way. As a school we chose to support the Veterans Food Drive in the days leading up to Remembrance Day.  Our grade 5 classes had coordinated this effort and frequently reminded us to bring our donations to the school.  In all students contributed over 1000 food items that filled the five large boxes provided by the Poppy Fund.  Some grade 5 students helped me load these onto my truck and they can attest to how heavy these boxes were.  We delivered these items on Monday to the Poppy Fund warehouse along with a very special envelope from our students  .Our grade 5 students chose to include 80 postcards that were hand painted and personalized with a picture message to the veteran that would receive it.  I have included a sample of the artwork at the top of this blog to give you some idea as to the quality of the work.  These postcards will be placed with food hampers by the staff at the Poppy Fund.  The staff were deeply moved by the lengths our students had gone to in hounour of our Veterans.
Each year I am overwhelmed by the connections our students make to Remembrance Day and this year is no different.  Thank you for helping me to Remember.
