Students Take Part In Juno Beach

You gotta love when kids take the initiative to learn more about our great history.

Ottawa-are high school students who have been selected for the pilgrimage from among many applicants from all across Canada and will travel to Europe this summer as part of the Juno Beach Centre’s initiatives to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the D Day Landings.

The Juno Beach Centre Association is a Canadian charity which built and manages the Juno Beach Centre, a museum in Normandy, France.  The Centre was established by Canadian veterans who wished to ensure the story of the Canadian contribution to the war effort is known and understood, especially by young people.

This July, the Juno Beach Centre Association is sponsoring a student pilgrimage to the battlefields of the First and Second World Wars in France and Belgium. They have selected 24 high school students from across the country, including 4 from right here in the Ottawa area.

Between July 3-14, they will visit many important sites in North West Europe, including Vimy Ridge, Ypres, Beaumont-Hamel, Dieppe, Juno Beach, and the Juno Beach Centre with each participant conducting a research project on a fallen Canadian soldier from the First or Second World War that they will present while on the trip.
