Cardinal Carter Catholic High School, in collaboration with the Aurora Legion and the Town of Aurora will be hosting two events in celebration of Remembrance Day. On Wednesday November 9th, eight veterans from the Aurora Legion will be coming to Cardinal Carter C.H.S. to visit the grade 11 and 12 IB History students. On Friday November 11th, students and staff of the Cardinal Carter community will be hosting two assemblies commencing at 8:30 am and 9:20 am in the cafeteria.
The Remembrance day assemblies will include a guest presentation by Mike Catania, a member of the Department of National Defence who has served in Afghanistan and trained as a member of the military police. Mr. Catania is also a Cardinal Carter alumni. This assembly will showcase footage from the recent Town of Aurora video project entitled “Remembrance Day – Past, Present and Future”, which features music composed by Cardinal Carter Music Students.

Additionally, students in the Gr. 11 IB History course will be going to the Aurora Cenotaph to lay flowers and participate in a brief prayer service in honour of our fallen soldiers.
