Honouring our Veterans in Killarney

The students of St. Joseph Catholic Elementary School in Killarney sing O'Canada beside the town's cenotaph during their Remembrance Day ceremony.

November 12, 2015 - Under a brilliant sun, with only the sound of the flapping Canadian flag in the background, students and staff from St. Joseph Catholic Elementary School in Killarney gathered around the town’s cenotaph on November 11, 2015 to remember those who have fought for their freedoms. Joined by Sudbury Catholic Superintendent Rossella Bagnato and several local residents, the students held their Remembrance Day prayer service, observed two minutes of silence, and ended the ceremony by singing O’Canada. “It is so very important that our students understand the sacrifices that were made by our veterans to ensure our freedom today, “ explained Monika Jost, principal. “We always want to ensure that future generations never take for granted what has been fought for in the past and the people who have made the ultimate sacrifice for us – our students know - we must always remember.”
