Students and staff across the Peel District School Board will recognize Remembrance Day on Nov. 11 with events and activities to honour our Canadian heroes. Staff at the HJA Brown Education Centre will also hold a reception to celebrate heroes and honour those who are still serving our country.

"Students and staff from our schools and locations gather every year for special Remembrance Day ceremonies," says Tony Pontes, director of education. "It's important to pay tribute to those who fought for our freedom and equally important to recognize and honour the men and women who are still serving our country today."
