The Grade 7 & 8 class has been busy studying the Battle of Vimy Ridge. Since this year marked the 100th anniversary of the infamous battle that lasted from April 9-12th, 1917. The picture is the Vimy Ridge Memorial in France and has engraved on it over 11 000 soldiers names who fought in the war and who's final resting place was never found. The students learned how important the battle was to the Canadian Identity at the time. The battle also showed the world that Canada was able to work independently and that they were not just a country within the British Empire.
