Please join us for our Remembrance Day Assembly on Monday, November 10th at 11:00 a.m. in the gym at Clifton School.
This month we are learning about Courage. Courage means listening to your heart and having the strength to do what is right. We honour people on Remembrance Day who showed great courage.
year on November 11, Canadians stop and are silent for a moment to remember the
men and women who showed courage and continue to show courage by serving our
country during times of war, conflict and peace. Many men and women gave their
lives and their futures so that we may live in peace. They listened to hearts and showed great courage.
We will be honouring our veterans: men and women who fought for Canada in the First World
War (1914-1918), the Second World War (1939-1945), the Korean War (1950-1953),
in Afghanistan today as well as those who keep peace in many places in the
Remembrance Day is on November 11.
The first Remembrance Day honoured the end of the First World War, which ended
on November 11, 1918 at 11:00 a.m. It is a time to honour the memory of the veterans
who gave their lives to protect us. It is a time to think about what peace and
freedom mean to us. It is a time to thank all the men and women whose courage
let us live in peace today. For one small moment of our life, we remember why we must
work for peace every day of the year.
It is the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the First World War and we have created a special memorial poppy to remember this important event.
