The event was attended by over 200 students, teachers, administration, and guests.

Two senior students, Tim Ofiaza, who was born in the Philippines and Khrystyna Doskoch, who was born in Ukraine, led the ceremony. Both are former students of Ms O Petryshyn.

Honourable speakers included Dr Bogdan Klid, of the University of Alberta, Gene Kirichenko, a Sisler alumnus, and Irka Balan, a child survivor of the Holodomor. Speakers were invited by Ms O Petryshyn.

During that week, students were able to learn about the Holodomor by viewing the library's display case, with period artifacts & documents
arranged by Ms O Petryshyn.
