M.R.J.H.S. Highlights

Thursday, November 23, 1961

On Friday, November 10, a Remembrance Day service was held in our auditorium. Following the national anthem, led by the choir, principal H.L. Draper read a letter from the Local Branch of the IODE which told of Holland’s participation in the remembrance of our war dead.

A group of Grade Seven pupils recited the poem, “In Flanders Fields” by John McCrea, and the choir, under the direction of Miss Birch, sang “O God of Love.” The service closed with the singing of The Queen.

During the week, a group of students prepared a very appropriate display in the showcase.

On November 14, reports were handed out after much work on the part of the teachers (and students).

Possible plans are being made for a contest to obtain a new crest for the school. The subject was brought up at a recent Students’ Council meeting, and even though nothing is definite, the students seem to have an interest in such a contest.
