On Tuesday, November 10, Alex Ferguson School students and staff held our first virtual Remembrance Day Assembly. Each classroom either performed a song, read stories and poems, shared art and/or created videos for all to see. Two of our students, Adam and Alya from room 10, were amazing as our emcees. During the days leading up to Remembrance Day, our staff and students were involved in discussing the sacrifices our Canadian soldiers have made for all of us.
It is always heart warming to hear the children talking about peace and freedom and using many ways of describing what Remembrance Day means to them. Due to FOIP concerns, we were unable to share the presentation publically. We really missed the parents and guests that usually attend this particular assembly. I hope for next year's assembly, the school community as a whole will be able to honour the service of Canadians together, to commemorate this special time of year.
