|EMSB STUDENTS PARTICIPATE IN AMBASSADORS OF CHANGE PROGRAM|
OTTAWA, MAY 15, 2017 – Students from five schools at the English Montreal School Board, along with their Spiritual and Community Animators, recently traveled to Ottawa to participate in the Canadian Society for Yad Vashem’s Ambassadors of Change program.
The annual program precedes the National Holocaust Remembrance Day ceremony and gives students from Quebec and Ontario the unique opportunity to interact with Holocaust survivors.
Students from LaurenHill Academy in St. Laurent, Program Mile End in Cote des Neiges, Focus and Outreach Schools in N.D.G. and John Grant High School in Côte Saint-Luc spent the afternoon participating in poignant discussions about what lessons can be learned from the Holocaust as well as how to ensure that these stories and memories are not forgotten.
