Hello Glen Cairn PS Families,
On November 11th, we observed Remembrance Day at Glen Cairn PS. The ceremony was beautiful, thanks to the involvement of many of our students. I would like to thank Lesley Anne, who was absolutely stunning on the trumpet, playing both O Canada with Mr. Fraser, and The Last Post and Rouse solo. Lesley Anne has an amazing talent and we were very lucky to hear her play.
Mrs. Ahern and the choir graced us with two pieces, which were beautiful. Thank you to all of our choir members for working so hard to produce polished pieces for our ceremony.
Mr. Fraser and the Handbells Choir performed two pieces as well. Once again, we are truly blessed to have such an unique musical ensemble, thanks to Mr. Fraser. The members of the Handbells group deserve a huge thank you for the time they took perfecting their pieces.
Sydney stepped in at the very last minute to provide technology support and to read the Act of Remembrance with a strong, clear voice. Thank you to Sydney for taking on both of those tasks.
Finally, we had a last minute addition in the form of a very moving poem by visiting Slam Poet, Nathanael Larochette. All in all, the ceremony was lovely and I won’t forget how all of the pieces came together to make something truly special.
Below are some photos taken by Jenna Thompson, who is Mr. Edgeworth’s partner and an incredible talent with the camera.
