We Remember...

We have been taking time to reflect on what Remembrance Day is all about.  We read an incredible true story called Bear In War with our buddy class that had us all in awe that a small teddy bear could make the journey all the way to the front lines of World War 1 and return home again.  If you ever travel to Ottawa, make sure you go and visit him in the Canadian War Museum.  His story is truly remarkable and is a symbol for all of the sacrifices that our soldiers have made for our freedom.

As a symbol of peace, and the hope that is represented in children everywhere, Mrs. Booth organized a special buddy project for our classes.  We created a mural with our fingerprints and if you look closely, there is a legend underneath each dove that shows the colours of paint that belong to each 
big and little buddy group.

"If we are to teach real peace intheis world...  We shall have to begin with the children." - Ghandi
