Thank you Elinor Florence!

November 11, 2019

Invermere author Elinor Florence visited Windermere Elementary School last week to tell our students about how children helped to win the Second World War, through such efforts as rationing, recycling, and writing letters.

Parents and students can read her whole blog post here: https://www.elinorflorence.com/blog/children-home-front/

Elinor has written a lot about Canadians in wartime and you can find all those stories on her website.

This wonderful opportunity came on the eve of our Remembrance Day ceremony on Friday November 8, 2019.  WES would like to thank Elinor for taking the time to speak and educate our students!

Poppies are placed on a cenotaph during a Remembrance Day service in Winnipeg.
