Dates to Remember


Principal's Message

November News

Thank you to all the parents who joined the Staff and Students here at James Short Memorial on Friday to honor those who served for our freedom. This year being the 100thAnniversary of the end of World War One – it seems more important than ever to remind our children to remember how blessed we are and the sacrifice it took for us to have the privileges we enjoy today. Out display case holds some rare photographs and memorabilia that are courtesy of the Larsen Family. The family has written the following details about the display: This group was instrumental in Operation Jubilee.   Not much is actually known about this mission except that the purpose of the mission was a reconnaissance. The group was to gather important information for the future mission we all know as  D-Day.  Many men from this regiment did not return home.  In a picture below, is all that remained of the regiment.  While healing in the hospital, the group was visited by the King, Queen, and their 2 daughters Princess Elizabeth, and Princess Margaret. While working at De Havilland Airport in Downsview Ontario, Mr. Harry R. Schwartz rescued these press photos from the trash and secretly took them home where they have been in the family’s possession since.  To date we are unsure what was released and what wasn’t.  Each photo is a rare glimpse into the daily lives of some soldiers.
All pictures are on loan courtesy of the Larsen Family.
This display will only be up for a short time. Please make sure you stop by the cabinet by the front doors and take a look! Thank you Larsen Family for your generous loaning of these rare artifacts!
