Richland Academy’s Remembrance Day Assembly conveyed poignancy and peacefulness as the school community came together to mark this important occasion.The Grade Five students shared a reflective montage of World War II experiences, which included a portrayal of Colonel John McCrae and a beautiful acapella rendition on the wartime hit, Lili Marlene. The Grade Six students followed with their performance of John Lennon’s classic, Imagine, with exceptional sensitivity. Their powerful presentation about wars currently being fought around the world brought the message of peace to the foreground.
