Elk Island Catholic Schools will be honoring our veterans and military community in services in schools beginning on Thursday, November 5, and Friday, November 6th. With public health restrictions in place, schools will be gathering virtually to watch ceremonies that will take place in gymnasiums and other large areas within the school with the traditional moments of silence, presentations, readings, and laying of wreaths.
Across Canada, we celebrate Veterans' Week from November 5-11th. This entire week honors those who have served Canada, past and present, in times of war, military conflict, and peace. This year's theme is the 75th anniversary of the Second World War.
Veterans Affairs Canada has an array of great resources available on its Veterans' Week website. Check them out by visiting: Veterans' Week 2020
