Today at the RMS Academy Campus our students participated in an important Remembrance Day celebration. The celebration started with all students singing the Canadian national anthem, and was followed by Grade 4 students presenting a reading of In Flounder’s Fields by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae. Grade 6 students also participated in a reading and our Pre-Kindergarten to Prep-One students worked hard to prepare readings and songs to show support for the many brave soldiers who have and continue to keep this country safe. Each class made a wreath of poppies to acknowledge the many fallen soldiers who have been part of keeping this country safe. Below is a video showing the Grade 1 to Grade 8 choirs (Junior and Senior Choirs) singing “Sing Out A Song of Peace.”
All ages of students are encouraged at RMS to understand the importance of Remembrance Day and to appreciate the history of this country. We all show support for the many brave people who fought during multiple wars, and who continue to serve this country around the world. Academy students were visited by Mr. Asif, a brave man who joined the Canadian reserve when he was in high-school. He is currently stationed at Fort York Armory in Toronto and is part of the Canadian Infantry. He explained to students the reason why we remember and celebrate on Remembrance Day. It is important that RMS students understand the history of Canada. Students were very interested in what Mr. Asif had to say, as his presence was engaging for students and teachers.
We look forward to seeing you and sharing with you the private school community of which we are so proud!
