CANWOOD PUBLIC SCHOOL SHARES STUDENT’S REMEMBRANCE DAY PROJECT
In English class, we were asked to come up with our own project ideas to commentate Remembrance Day. For my project, I chose to run from my home on Ahtahkakoop First Nations to the front doors of Canwood Public School. It was a 14 km run, I had left my house at 7:30 am, and I arrived at the school around 9:50. It was definitely a challenge to run considering it was the first major snow fall of the year and so I had to push myself to make a finish. I had thought about all the people we have lost in the past wars and that didn’t make it back. Running through the harsh winter conditions had me thinking of the struggles of weather that our veterans would have endured and having to put up with the harsh weather and physical effort made me appreciate their sacrifice even more.
