Remembrance Day
Posted on 11/11/2020
On November 11th, students and staff at St. Marie of the Incarnation Catholic school will pause to give thanks for all of those who gave their lives for our freedom.

Sapper Brian Collier

Sapper Collier

Born in Toronto in 1986 and raised in Bradford ON (where the street "Brian Collier Way" has been named in his honour), Sapper Collier was a member of 1 Combat Engineer Regiment, based in Edmonton. After graduating from Bradford District High School Brian worked for a while before joining the Canadian Forces in 2007. He was posted to 1 Combat Engineer Regiment in November 2008 after completing his basic Combat Engineering training at the Canadian Forces School of Military Engineering and was on his first deployment to Afghanistan.

Individual classrooms will pause and participate in commemoration ceremonies beginning around 10:30 am and concluding with the playing of the Last Post, followed by a minute of silence and the playing of our National Anthem.

Please take a moment, at the kitchen table, to have a discussion with your child about the significance of this day.
