Remembrance at Amalgamated Academy
Remembrance Day observances were held at Amalgamated Academy on Nov. 9. The school hosted a touching ceremony in honour of those who have sacrificed so much for our freedom today. Humble performances were given by our talented students, teachers and community leaders. Our regional cadets began our ceremony with the marching of the colour party and instrumentals. The school’s glee club sang beautifully with songs “Imagine” and “William McBride.”
A powerful improv performance entitled “My Poppy” was given by the school drama team. In this performance, student Liam Dawson and his grandfather, Eric Mercer, a member of Branch No. 32 of the Royal Canadian Legion, took part. In addition to the performances, we received an inspirational speech by Capt. Lisa Hillier from the Salvation Army. Other presentations included the reading of poems and letters by our students .
Amalgamated Academy did an amazing job in bringing home the true meaning of Remembrance Day and humility for those who gave immensely. — Submitted by Julie Andrews,
