” More than 45,000 Canadians have taken part in the mission in Afghanistan and 162 people from all walks of life have made the ultimate sacrifice, ” the letter from the Alberta government explained.
Today we were asked by the Education Minister, Jeff Johnson, to acknowledge our troops and their efforts. We hope that our sacrifices have help children there have access to education. It is through education that we understand each other, make peace and find solutions.
Along with members of our Board, Katie Franczak and Larry Leach, we held a brief ceremony. We then shared some cake made by our students, juice and conversation.
