As a part of Re­mem­brance Day cel­e­bra­tions, stu­dents at Holy Redeemer par­tic­i­pate in a poster, poem, and es­say con­test, spon­sored by the Royal Cana­dian Le­gion Branch 9 in Spa­niard’s Bay.

Abi­gail Gal­way, an eighth grade stu­dent at Holy Redeemer Ele­men­tary, placed third at the pro­vin­cial level in the poster con­test. Gal­way’s win­ning en­try will now go on to the na­tional level to be judged.

Win­ners from each cat­e­gory of the con­test are se­lected from each grade level, from kinder­garten to ninth, and then dis­played at the an­nual Re­mem­brance Day din­ner at the Royal Cana­dian Le­gion Branch 9.

Win­ning en­tries of the poster con­test, a pri­mary level con­test, and the poem and es­say con­tests, ele­men­tary and in­ter­me­di­ate lev­els, are sent to Pro­vin­cial Com­mand of the Royal Cana­dian Le­gion to be judged on a pro­vin­cial ba­sis.


Abi­gail Gal­way, along­side Gor­don Par­sons, David This­tle and Wil­liam Tit­ford, placed third in the pro­vin­cial level in the poster con­test.
