Please wear RED on Wednesday March 12th
Muir Lake School will be holding a special ceremony in honour of the Afghanistan Mission coming to an end starting at 12:30 p.m.
From the Honourable Education Minister and Ministerial Liaison to the Canadian Armed Forces, Mr. Jeff Johnson . . .
. . . As I am sure you are aware, Canada is in the process of completing its 12-year mission in Afghanistan. The symbolic end of the most visible component will be the lowering of the Canadian flag in Kabul, Afghanistan upon completion of the military mission which is scheduled for March 12. This is a very significant day for Canadians and for Alberta and a great opportunity to teach our children valuable lessons. With that in mind and on behalf of Premier Redford, I request that your school authority take part in activities to mark this historic event and to provide your students with an opportunity to learn about and commemorate the contributions of all Canadians, whether they were in uniform or not, to the international effort in Afghanistan.
