In Sundridge, the Near North District School Board says the Grades 7 and 8 students in Jamey Sollman’s class are leading the Remembrance Day events at Sundridge Centennial Public School.
Along with a virtual ceremony that they’ve prepared, the students have arranged for all students at the school to plant a large plastic poppy outside the school.
Students will go outside in their cohorts to add their poppies to the garden.
Members of the Sundridge Legion Branch 467 will be viewing the display Thursday afternoon.
