Yesterday the YMCA Academy presented our annual Remembrance Day ceremony to 42 Charles Street East.  The ceremony included a minute of silence, traditional readings such as “In Flander’s Field”, a video from Veterans Affairs Canada, and student writing and poetry.  We also paid respect to the contribution of Aboriginal people in times of both war and peace – this also included a native smudging.  Thank you to all of the students who worked to make the ceremony so special.  We received many positive comments from people in the building.  Well done!
