We cordially invite your Faculty and Students to an Open House at the Royal Canadian Legion, Waterloo Branch No. 530. (316 Marsland Drive, Waterloo)
We must continue to help celebrate, honour, remember, and teach our youth about the contributions and sacrifices of our Veterans and in fostering the Tradition of Remembrance amongst Canada’s Youth Waterloo Branch 530 will be Hosting a special ‘Why We Remember’ week.
The Students will partake in the Royal Canadian Legion Opening Ceremonies, with the singing of O’Canada, join in the Poppy Ritual, have a question period and watch a short video. There will be a formal Wreath Laying by some of the Students in each class and the Closing Ceremonies with the singing of God Save the Queen. We hope to provide the Students with a fundamental understanding of who, what, where, when and why we are called upon to defend our freedom and the democracy that we have today. During this week, all Veteran Organizations will be setting up displays, memorials, military history and video films etc. Pamphlets, Teacher’s Guides and information books will be available. Veterans will speak on their experiences and answer questions. Cadets will be in attendance explaining their varied projects and endeavors. Descriptions and clarifications for the many Youth Programs, which are sponsored by The Royal Canadian Legion, will be made available. Discover how easy it would be to become a part of our Remembrance Day Parades on November 11th, 2015 at the Kitchener and Waterloo Cenotaphs. March along with us and Lay a Wreath on behalf of your School and the Youth of Today.
