Remembrance Day Ceremony
Our school will host Remembrance Day Ceremonies on Thursday, November 10. At Burnett, students and staff normally wear black and white and "dress their best" for our ceremonies to show respect for those who have and continue to sacrifice for our freedoms. Poppies will be provided in Block A on Thursday and students may make donations which goes to the Legion Poppy Fund. The Legion provides financial assistance and support for Veterans, including Canadian Armed Forces and RCMP, and their families who are in need.
Our Remembrance Day assemblies are always classy student-led opportunities for our whole school community to take a moment to reflect.
Students will attend one of two ceremonies. Their teacher in B block will share which ceremony they will attend.
- First Ceremony - 9:40 AM
- Second Ceremony - 10:45 AM
