On November 2nd, 2011 level 5 students of Pierre de Coubertin Elementary School were invited to participate in a Remembrance Day Ceremony held for the Italian seniors of Le club joviales run by Giovanna Pietrantonio. The children prepared for this special day and honoured those who have been so brave in order to help others.

The children were touched and experienced an opportunity to meet veterans from the Royal Canadian Legion 107 Branch, Ortona(Giovanni Simone & Vincenzo Iadeluca; Alpino Regiment, L’Aquila Battalion(Emidio Di Paola). Patricia Crichton, District Commander of Hochelaga #7 of the Royal Canadian Legion had a special message for the children. She explained how conflicts arise because of religion and/ or race differences. She spoke about bullying and how it affects others.

We would like to thank everyone who participated , having made this day a memorable one.
