PECI students remember military milestones by creating history videos

Each year, from Nov. 5 to 11, Canadians join together to celebrate Veterans’ Week.
Paying tribute to Canadian veterans, Grade 10 students in the Venture History class at Prince Edward Collegiate Institute created videos about aspects of the Second World War.

This year marks significant historical military milestones with the 95th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge, the 95th anniversary of the capture of Passchendaele and the 70th anniversary of the Dieppe Raid.

This Veterans’ Week, take time to remember by attending a Remembrance Day ceremony, visiting a local cenotaph or monument, sharing your thoughts of remembrance online, or wearing a poppy with pride. Learn more at
