The holidays are just around the corner, but before you get
caught up in all the holiday glam, slow down and take a moment to remember
on November 11th.
Many Canadian expats in Singapore will likely miss the estimated
thousands of emembrance Day events that are held across Canada between Nov 5 and Nov 11, but we can still show veterans our gratitude for the
sacrifices and achievements they made in serving our country. Before you check your Facebook account or Twitter tonight, log onto: http://www.veterans.gc.ca/eng/teach_resources/50ways_remember and browse your
Government's Veterans Affairs website. It is interactive,
it is historical and it is educational.
Teach your kids and click on the Educational-Resources tab under Veteran's Week. The downloadable PDF activity booklet for children is presented in English and French and entitled, "Take Time to Remember/ Prendre le Temps de se Souvenir".
