On Tuesday, Nov. 10, an assembly was held in remembrance of those killed in the first and second world wars.
After the singing of “O Canada,” principal D.A. Voth made a few remarks. Following these, the interesting film “The Long Silence” was shown. The film was lent to the school by the Canadian Legion.
Following the film, the Glee Club, under the direction of Mrs. Shaw, sang two selections: “God of Love, O King of Peace” and “Valiant Hearts.” Accompanist was Joan Smith, and the soloist was Jim Hestermann.
The Rev. Canon dePencier gave an interesting and informative address. This was followed by the Last Post, a one-minute period of silence, and Reveille. The school then sang “O God, Our Help in Ages Past.” The assembly closed with the singing of “The Queen,” and left everyone with a feeling of solemnity and thoughtfulness towards those who had fought and fallen for our country in the two great wars.
