MONTREAL, SEPTEMBER 6, 2011 - On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks, a commemoration will take place on Wednesday, September 7 (10:50 a.m.) at Laurier Macdonald High School (7355 Viau) in St. Léonard.
Secondary IV and V students in the International Baccalaureate (IB) program will lead an interactive session to talk about what occurred on September 11, 2001. There will be representation from the Montreal Fire Department, with members elaborating upon their jobs and how their lives were affected by this tragedy. Five students from Dante Elementary School will also share the stories of the children marked by September 11.
The entire student body at Laurier Macdonald will be writing 3,000 letters to the New York Fire Department to mark the lives that were lost on that day. IB Secondary V students Francesca Palermo, Arianna Meo, Adrianna Di Bennedetto and Cythia Bardis have also created a seven foot model of the World Trade Center and decorated the main cafeteria wall with letters of remembrance, hope and peace.
