Canada Day

Today, Year 5 took part in the annual Canada Day Service which commemorates the 305 Canadian soldiers who died in WW1 and are buried in the Shorncliffe Military Cemetery.

The memorial service takes place each year on or near Canada Day at the Canadian Servicemen's graves, which is attended by local civic dignitaries, representatives from the Canadian High Commission, the local British Army Command, War Graves Commission, Veterans and Old Comrade's Associations.

The children joined in with prayers, hymns and took part in quiet reflection time. It was an honour to be able to attend with such well behaved children. I think you will agree how smart they look in their uniform- they were complimented by several members of the public on their appearance.

A huge thank you to the adults for providing such beautiful posies for this special event!
