Children at Pitt Meadows Elementary will get a chance to think about the sacrifice of their countrymen this week.
In the lead up to Remembrance Day, they will learn about the significance of the occasion, and then paint rocks, which will be placed at the local war monument.
Vice principal Jennifer Beveridge said it is a way of leaving something physical and tangible to show the kids why we remember our veterans.
“The students will either do a finger painting of a poppy, or they can choose a word that comes to mind,” Beveridge said, “They will have their creative freedom.”
