MSA Holds Remembrance Day Ceremony

November 9, 2018

As is their annual tradition, MSA held their Remembrance Day Ceremony, with the solemn event used as a teaching and learning experience to held the students understand the significance of November 11th.

The ceremony includes the playing of ‘The Last Post’ and a moment of silence, and this year, students who are involved in the Regiment Cadets, Sea Cadets, and Boy Scouts wore their uniforms to serve as the colour guard.

Following the ceremony, the Bermuda Legion’s welfare caseworker, Carol Everson, spoke to the Grade 11 students during their Social Studies class.

MSA Principal Sue Moench said, “We think it is very important to keep this tradition alive and ensure that the students are aware of why the November holiday exists.

“If we do not recognize the significance of the day, the sacrifice made by thousands throughout the world would be meaningless. We remember the service and sacrifice of men and women, some of whom were the same age as our high school students, who fought for the freedom we experience today.

“Individual acts of heroism occur frequently, but only a few are recorded. Through remembering all who serve, whether it be in the wars or peacekeeping missions, we recognize the hardships and fears so that we can live in peace.”

In addition to today’s ceremony, a group of MSA students will be reading the poem “The Fallen” at the Beacon Lighting Ceremony at Government House on Sunday.
