Principal's Message

Remembrance Day

This morning was historic, as the 500 members of the Woodman community commemorated Remembrance Day in their classrooms, silently and reverently. Under normal circumstances, important ceremonies are celebrated as one large community, in the main gymnasium of the school. I hope that very soon we will be able to do that again. In the meantime, though, we have still found meaningful ways to honour peace.
I shared the following words over the school PA system before watching our recorded version of the Remembrance Day ceremony with students in classrooms today:
Throughout the history of this land, and after this land became named Canada, there were moments of great conflict. On Remembrance Day, we think about the sacrifices of Canadians who gave of their lives to fight for peace. This was an effort that everyone took on, though. It was not just the soldiers. People across homes and communities knitted socks and mittens, drove ambulances, and delivered messages to the soldiers and their family members. Everyone worked to support the war effort.
Many first and second born Canadians, like me, may never have experienced war in their lifetime. I live a peaceful life in a peaceful country because of the sacrifices of my ancestors. Not everyone at Woodman school has been that fortunate. Some students have personally lived in, and left countries that experienced war. You have personally suffered because of it. Today is a day to remember all of that, too.
Presently, although we are not fighting a physical war, we are facing one of the most significant pandemics in the last 100 years. We do not see the enemy, COVID, per se. But we see everyone’s efforts to keep Canada safe, just like in times of war. When you wear a mask correctly, when you stay home when sick to protect others, when you refrain from sharing food and drink with others, and when you follow rules about keeping two meters of distance – both at school and in your personal lives - you are all contributing to the great efforts that will get us through this tough time.
I know everyone is fighting everyday, in the same way I am. We are fighting to keep Woodman School - and our staff and students - safe, both physically and psychologically. I thank you for all that you are doing.
Let us bless this land and acknowledge all those that have and continue to strive for its well-being.
Ms. Krickhan, Principal
