Please join us for a Remembrance Day Experience on Friday, November 9th at RUTLAND SENIOR SECONDARY school, it’s a must see. 

 

Due to the overwhelmingly positive responses from our students, staff, District staff, parents and community members to our innovative and respectful way we chose to hold our Remembrance Day Ceremony last year, we have chosen to continue to hold an experiential gallery walk this year.  It will allow us all to remember, connect and honour on this significant day in our country.  There will be some changes to the way it was done last year, including having to walk outside for a portion of it.  The gallery walk will begin at approximately 9:15am with a school wide singing of Oh Canada and then classes will be scheduled to move through the displays throughout the morning.  The last group will move through at 11:20am.  We will conclude the morning at approximately 11:40am with a school wide Last Post and moment of silence.  Parents and community members are invited to join in our Remembrance Day Experience between 9:30am -11:20am.  Entrance will be at the far end of the gym by the back doors and it is anticipated to take you at least 20 mins to go through.  Please join us.
