On Remembrance Day, we honour those who have served and continue to serve our country. We acknowledge the courage and sacrifice of those touched by war and our responsibility to work for the peace they worked hard to achieve.
On November 11, the Greenwood community watched a special presentation that included moving stories and musical performances. After playing the National Anthem, the Greenwood choir performed a beautiful rendition of “Long Time Traveller” by the Wailin’ Jennys. Our Heads of Student Leadership, Liv Arbess ‘21 and Stewie Bain ‘21, as well as Ms. Bruce, spoke about the importance of Remembrance Day and our responsibility to reflect on the sacrifices people have endured in order to better our country. We also heard from Dani Bauer ‘21 who recited “In Flanders Fields” and from Ryan Flux ‘21 who performed The Last Post and the Rouse.
In remembering those who have served and continue to serve for our country, not all stories have been told. During this presentation, we watched videos that highlighted the experiences of BIPOC and LGBTQ+ soldiers. We also created a padlet to highlight the contributions of Canadians with a wide range of identities.
