Remembrance Day

November 14th 2022

LV Rogers' Remembrance Day service was held the morning of November 10 in the LVR gym. The service attended by LVR staff and students as well as special guest community members, Trustee Bremner and Brian Koster from the Royal Canadian Legion - Nelson Branch. 

The service began with a heartfelt presentation by Mr. Brian Koster from the Royal Canadian Legion who presented to the students about the history of the Legion, why we wear a poppy and the significance of Remembrance Day. This was followed by a poem and a presentation by LVTV acknowledging the fallen soldiers of LV Rogers alumni during World War 1 and World War 2. 

The LVR school band, led by Ms. Matosevic, played beautiful and reflective music to begin and end the ceremony and also played a fantastic rendition of 'O Canada'. The Last Post and Reville was played by Nico Bucher, grade 12 student. 

The cafeteria class also made Metis cookies to acknowledge those Indigenous Veterans and remember the Indigenous fallen soldiers. They turned out beautifully!
