Video of Afghanistan shown

Stanstead Journal - - FO­RUM -

Mr. Phendler played gui­tar. Ms. Grey’s 5/6 class pre­sented an in­ter­est­ing video, en­ti­tled “Tribute to our Cana­dian Soldiers” that they got off the in­ter­net for the au­di­ence. Images of mod­ern war and peace­keep­ing scenes from Afghanistan seemed to cap­ti­vate the spe­cial guests as much as the stu­dents.

Dur­ing a brief ques­tion pe­riod, most of the stu­dent’s ques­tions were aimed at RCMP Cor­po­ral Rus­sell Sang­ster who was dressed in the of­fi­cial Moun­tie uni­form. Stu­dents wanted to know if he had a horse, if he had a shield and if he had guns. “I wear a bul­let­proof vest which is like a shield,” he an­swered care­fully.

Fol­low­ing the cer­e­mony, af­ter the guests had told the stu­dents that they had been well-be­haved and re­spect­ful dur­ing the solemn event, and he was right.

The spe­cial guests who at­tended Sun­ny­side’s Re­mem­brance Cer­e­mony, seen here with Prin­ci­pal Steve Weary at the far right, were (l. to r.) piper An­drew Blair, Direc­tor of Aca­demics for Stanstead Col­lege; Le­gion pres­i­dent David Woodard; RCMP Cor­po­ral Rus­sell Sang­ster II vet­eran and vice-pres­i­dent of the Stanstead Le­gion, Cap­tain Don­ald Tay­lor; and Ma­jor Chris Galvin of the Sher­brooke Hus­sars.
