Canada Day

1st July is Canada Day, this is when as a country we remember all the Canadian soldiers that have fought for us especially in World War One. Over 60,000 Canadian soldiers gave their lives during that war alone. A memorial service takes place each year at the Canadian Servicemen’s graves at Shorncliffe, where approximately 300 children from several Folkestone schools lay flowers on the 296 Canadian soldiers’ graves.

22 children from Year 4 attended and behaved brilliantly on such a scorching hot day.
