  4. Today we will have a bit of a longer announcement regarding D-Day as today, June the 6th, marks the 75th anniversary of D-Day.

    D-Day was a very important battle fought in Europe during the Second World War. The battle was given the code name: Operation Overlord.

    D-Day was at the time, the largest coordinated military effort in history. The battles that took place at the beaches of Normandy were a combined effort between British, American and Canadian soldiers to reclaim France from Nazi control.

    Although the battle was difficult, the Canadians, Americans and British were successful. D-Day is still thought of by many as the battle that won the war.

    We now have a short excerpt from the famous poem For the Fallen, written by Robert Laurence Binyon:

    They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old: age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we shall remember them.

    Let us now take a moment to quietly reflect on the freedom that we enjoy today because of the sacrifices of the men and women who fought for our freedom during Operation Overlord, D-Day and all other military conflicts.

    Let us be forever grateful for the freedom we all enjoy every day.

    We will now have 30 seconds of silence to honour all fallen soldiers.

    Thank you for your respect and quiet reflection, enjoy the rest of your day.

  5. Treat people the way you want to be treated.  Have a Thrilling Thursday!

  1. Eid al Fitr (Islam)

    Eid al Fitr begins at sundown on the first day of Shawwal, the tenth month of the Muslim calendar, and marks the end of the month of Ramadan. On this day, Muslims who have been observing Ramadan break their fast and celebrate its conclusion. Muslims also thank Allah for the help and strength given during Ramadan to help them practice self-control.

    The day traditionally begins early with a prayer ceremony at the community mosque. Since this is a day to celebrate the renewal of one’s commitment to Islam, people may wear new clothes as a symbol of fresh beginnings. Families typically visit one another and exchange good wishes, hugs, and handshakes, and homes are often decorated to reflect the festive atmosphere of this special day.

  2. Ultimate team members please meet in the gym at morning recess (Mrs. Pace)
