THIS WEEK IN HORIZON (November 16 - 20, 2015)
Kevin C. Garinger – Director of Education

As promised, I will compile the last two weeks into This Week in Horizon. It seems so far away from my last communication and so much has happened, it’s hard to get it all into a few short pages. I think it’s best to just apologize for the length of this edition ahead of time!

I have to start with the reason school staff had their week off, Remembrance Day. Although I was in Saskatoon on Monday and Tuesday of November 9th and 10th with the Board for the SSBA Fall General Assembly and was not able to attend any of our Remembrance Day ceremonies, I heard from the likes of MLAs, parents, community members and central office staff that our students, teachers and support staff made Horizon proud. As I had mentioned earlier, I am grateful for the work that goes into such a critical day in our calendar. There can be no more important responsibility for any of us than to take time to remember our veterans and current military personnel who put themselves in harm’s way to ensure the freedom we sometimes take for granted. I recall reading a poem during high school by Wilfred Owen in which he had the line, “Dulce et Decorum est pro patria mori”. The rough translation of the entire Latin phrase is, “It is a great and wonderful honour to fight and die for one’s country”. Owen begins the line by indicating that this phrase is “the old lie”. We know veterans did not expect to lose their lives in their missions but because we know many men and women made this greatest sacrifice, it requires our utmost in humility and reverence. On behalf of Horizon School Division, I humbly say “Lest We Forget”.
