Students at Sacred Heart Catholic School in Port Lambton joined with hundreds of others across the St. Clair Catholic district in paying honour to those who served in Canada's wars and peace-keeping missions.

"It is important that we gather as a school community to honour those who have served, to pay our respects to the many who have died in service to our country and to acknowledge the courage of those who still serve," says Joanne McCreery, Principal of Sacred Heart Catholic School.

Each year, students especially honour the memory of 21-year-old Private William Cushley, a former Sacred Heart student, who died in service to our country in Afghanistan in 2006.

Following a school liturgy of remembrance, the students created a wall of poppies, where each student brought a unique poppy to be placed on the wall among crosses.
