By Louise Smith – On Thursday, November 8th, Heroes’ Memorial School held its annual Remembrance Day commemoration assembly. It was one of the best that it has ever held. It began with Legion members bringing in the flags of Canada, Quebec, and the Legion, behind students waving flags of peace. The students were respectful and appreciative of the veterans and guests in attendance and during the two minutes of silence at eleven o’clock and while six wreaths and a cross were laid on a table at the front of the gym. Sixth grade Students from Ecole St. Leon came. They have been visitors for over ten years to the Remembrance Day assembly. Some of them joined with Heroes’ students to recite the French version of “In Flanders Fields” by John McCrae. Before that students in grade four recited it in English. It was very fitting that this poem was used as it was written on the battlefields of World War One. Liam Allen and Emberly Decelles-Daniel, from grade four, read out poems that they had written. Gabriel Neil, a student from Heroes’, was dressed as a member of the Air Cadets. Lorianne Charest and James Piette were in scout uniforms.
