On Monday, November 10th LMST students, staff and honoured guests gathered in the gymnasium for our Remembrance Day ceremony.

 

Together we sang our national anthem in both languages, listened to our choir’s lovely rendition of ‘Last Night I had the Strangest Dream‘ and were moved by our strings group playing Mr. Ogden’s original composition ‘Adagio for a Fallen Friend‘.

 

We were also fortunate to have Major Rod Sterling speak to us about remembering the men and women who have served, and continue to serve our country during times of war, conflict and peace. He also spoke about his own experiences as a Canadian soldier on mission in the Sudan. The students were particularly intrigued by the biggest prop a speaker has ever brought into the Le Marchant gymnasium – a 1945 Jeep used in the Second World War!

 

We also welcomed to our Remembrance Day ceremony several parents who serve in our Armed Forces. The photo above includes (from l-r): Ali Laaouan and daughter Gaby; Lindsay Elford and children Julia and Stephen; Sarah and David Orr and daughter Addison; and Rod Sterling and daughter Mia.

 

Thank you all for joining us.
