Those who have no record of what their forebears have accomplished lose the inspiration which comes from the teaching of biography and history-Carter G. Woodson
November is always a busy time at St. Patrick, and in particular for the Social Science Department. November is Veterans Month, where we take time to remember those who fought in the defence of Canada, especially those who gave their lives. The focal point of this month-long event is the annual commemoration of Remembrance Day on the 11th.
This year our Vimy 2017 travellers, under the direction of Mr. Battistel and Ms. Caza, helped organize the prayer service held in the auditorium with the assistance of our chaplain, Ms. DeBruyne. Meaghan Dougherty was the master of ceremonies, while Breaden Fediuk read the poem “In Flanders Fields.” Ms. DeBruyne led the assembly in prayer and Shayna Badiuk sounded the Last Post and Reveille. The school band, under the direction of Mr. Soderlind, played beautifully throughout the service and also featured a great vocal rendition of “O Canada,” sung by Shaelynn Moorman.
