I was one of the veterans who attended this assembly. We would like to thank Principal Dawn Bartz and all the students who participated. The program was moving and exceptionally well done. The talent exhibited by the students was most impressive and the genuine, very personal welcome that we received was greatly appreciated by all of us. We hope that the video is put on PCTV as it particularly moved us.
