Remembrance Day Ceremony

Remembrance Day RS It was an honour to be in attendance today in Thedford as the students of Bosanquet and members of the surrounding communities came to show their respect for those who have and are currently serving their country. The assembly began at 10:15am at Knox with the students giving readings, singing songs, and reading poetry. Chris O’Reilly, known by the children as a very familiar face at Bosanquet informed the children of how this day is special to her due to her father and husband’s involvement in different wars. After engaging the children in some history, Chris sang the song by John McDermott – Christmas In The Trenches. Following the assembly at Knox everyone crossed the street to the Cenotaph for the 11am service. Among those in attendance were Veterans, members of the Women’s Auxiliary, a Militia Soldier, Firefighters a Cadet and a Scout. Everyone sang O Canada, Taps was played on the trumpet, and wreathes were laid in remembrance.  Press Play below to see an overview of the morning events.
