Lest We Forget

On November 10th our school held our annual Remembrance Day ceremony. On this special day we honour those who fought and we especially remember those who never returned home from the battlefields. The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month marks the exact moment the guns fell silent in 1918, and ever since that day, Canadians mark the day to honour our dead.


In Flanders Fields by John McCrae

In Flanders fields the poppies blow

Between the crosses, row on row,

That mark our place; and in the sky

The larks, still bravely singing, fly

Scarce heard amid the guns below.


We are the Dead. Short days ago

We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,

Loved and were loved, and now we lie,

In Flanders fields.


Take up our quarrel with the foe:

To you from failing hands we throw

The torch; be yours to hold it high.

If ye break faith with us who die

We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

In Flanders fields.
