Today is National Aboriginal Veterans Day, which is a memorial day in recognition of Indigenous contributions to the military, in particular during the First and Second World Wars and the Korean War. First Nations, Metis, Inuit, and other Indigenous people were not conscripted in these wars because they weren’t considered Canadian citizens at the time. Despite that, it is estimated that more than 12,000 Indigenous men and women volunteered and served. We take this day to remember and honour the courage and strength of these service men and women. The office is accepting donations to the Poppy Fund.

November 10th is Formal Day in honour of Remembrance Day. Please wear your formal attire to show your respect.

Reminder that the application form and payment for the AP exams are due today. Any questions, please see Mr. Ngo.
