Long-term Desired Outcome
Across Canada, students connect with one another to participate and share in a solemn Ceremony of Remembrance. While the act of honouring our military is of utmost importance, students also gain an increased awareness that they have the power to “make a difference” in their world. Through this endeavor, students demonstrate greater self-esteem, increased motivation to become global citizens and gain a greater awareness of the need for peace. All of this is attained while learning more about our Canadian military history. Students also develop leadership skills by learning the importance of service to the community and learn to respect the cemetery sites as a place of honour.
