Re­mem­brance at Amal­ga­mated Academy

The Compass - - ORTHTE -

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,
