Remembrance day assemblies to honour fallen Old Boys

Prep students will honour those men and women who have served our country during a Remembrance Day assembly on Tuesday, Nov. 11. The SK to Form 3 assembly will be at 8:30 a.m. and the Form 4 to 7 assembly will be at 9:15 a.m. The assembly will highlight seven UCC Old Boys who paid the ultimate price at the battle of Vimy Ridge in the First World War.

We will honour those who fought for Canada in the First World War (1914-1918), the Second World War (1939-1945), and the Korean War (1950-1953) as well as those who have served since then.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the First World War. One of its most epic moments was the battle of Vimy Ridge in France on April 9, 1917.  It was a defining moment in Canadian history. For the first time, Canadians from coast to coast fought together as one unit. Many historians view this battle as the coming of age of our country. For the first time in its history, Canadians were seen not just as another colony in the British Empire, but as a unique culture willing to contribute and to sacrifice in this time of war. More than 15,000 Canadians joined forces to take this strategic point. In the battle, 3,598 Canadians were killed and another 7,000 were injured.
