Thank you to Mrs. Asquini, Capt. Niedzielski (Guest Speaker), Mr. David Maclean (Honor Guard), Ms. Kwantes (Choral Director), and Zohan Chan (Accompanist) for your contributions to the Ceremony.
The ceremony began with the the choir leading the singing of O Canada in both English and French.
After a presentation from Capt. Niedzielski, poems were read by NHS students.
