A group of 17 GVC students and 2 chaperones had the honor of attending the 100th Anniversary of the battle of Vimy Ridge in France on April 9th along with 25,000 other Canadians. The event honored the soldiers who fought so bravely and sacrificed so much in the horrific WWI battle. Dignitaries present included Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, French President François Hollande, Prince Charles, Prince Harry, and Prince William. After a moving ceremony, many people from our GVC group actually had the opportunity to meet Prince Harry and Prince William and Prime Minister Trudeau. It was a surreal experience that we will never forget.
Apart from the Vimy 100 ceremony, GVC students were able to spend some time visiting various battle sites and cemeteries, and were also able to spend some time doing tours of London and Paris.
It was a spectacular trip, and as chaperones, we are so proud of how GVC students carried themselves and represented our school.
