Remembrance Day Ceremonies at Claremont – Poppy Donations
Claremont will be recognizing Remembrance Day during assemblies on TUESDAY November 10th.  This is an opportunity for us to remember and honour the men and women who have served Canada, and who continue to serve our country, during times of war, armed conflict and peace.  We will join together to appreciate what our veterans stand for and what they have sacrificed for our country. 

The Poppy is a visual symbol of remembrance of those Canadians who have fallen in war and military support operations.  Poppies will be available on Tuesday at Claremont, and we encourage all staff and students to make a poppy donation to raise funds in support of Veterans and their families through the Royal Canadian Legion.
