MARYMOUNT ACADEMY TO HOLD MEMORIAL FOR SHIREL ATTAR

Repercussion Theatre

MONTREAL, SEPTEMBER 21, 2010  Students and staff at Marymount Academy (5100 Côte Saint-Luc Road) in N.D.G. will take part in a memorial service for the late Shirel Attar on Wednesday, September 22  at 1 p.m.

Shirel Attar was a Grade 8 student at Marymount last year. She was tragically murdered in August. Her older brother was arrested.

Principal Craig Olenik believes that it is only  appropriate to  hold such a memorial. “Shirel had her entire life ahead of her,” he said. “She joined our school last year and was making new friends. Her death was an unspeakable tragedy.”

Members of the English Montreal School Board  Student Services Department  Trauma Team made themselves available to talk to staff and students  prior to the resumption of classes.
