St. Anne Angels Learn about “Being Brave”

St. Anne Catholic School students Nicholas Roy (left), Cameron O'Daiskey and Addison Gibbs, hold various inquiry based learning tools that led them to their own discussions about Remembrance Day.

November 15, 2012 - Remembrance Day takes on a special meaning in the Full Day Kindergarten (FDK) French Immersion class at St. Anne Catholic Elementary School in Hanmer. Student Cameron O'Daiskey holds her great-grandfather's medal. “He got them by being brave in WWII,” said Cameron O'Daiskey.
The class read various books about poppies and veterans. Their favourite book was Proud as a Peacock by Jane Barclay. They also used the iPADs in the classroom in order to research the medals and their meaning. This inquiry led the class to wonder how they could earn medals and make “the world a better place.”
