Art of Remembrance

Students at Cloverdale's George Greenaway Elementary mark Remembrance Day through an artistic project.

Students at George Greenaway Elementary have created a large mural of peace for Rembrance Day, inspired by Picasso’s Guernica.

This is just one panel of their work. Each class collaborated on a panel of the mural, creating a multi-colour statement of peace and remembrance on the wall of the school’s gymnasium. The theme of the project was, “We all have a hand in peace.”

More than 400 students and staff gathered in the gym on Nov. 7 for a Remembrance Day assembly, singing songs, reciting poems such as In Flanders Fields, written by Canadian John MacRae in 1915, and listening to piper Capt. Norm Demer of the 746 Air Cadet Squadron play several selections on the bagpipes, including Amazing Grace, before observing a moment of silence.
