Here are a
few special highlights of the many exceptional Remembrance Day activities undertaken by our students, employees and school communities this year:
Port Moody Station Museum Exhibit "Tell Us the Stories: Tell Us the Stories: Projects of Remembrance" On Thursday, November 8th, at 4:00 pm, the Port Moody Station Museum is having an opening for
“Tell Us the Stories: Projects of Remembrance.” This is an exhibit featuring
stories and personal artifacts belonging to families whose children attend four
SD43 schools: Moody Elementary, Anmore Elementary, Mountain Meadows and
Pleasantside Elementary. Each story draws a personal connection to wars
both past and present. The projects were created by children working
together with their parents and grandparents. There will be a short choir performance, some opening remarks and a
chance to view the SD43 Principal and war historian John Goheen
led a Royal Canadian Legion Pilgrimage of Remembrance tour: http://ow.ly/8urm30mBqe1
