ADHS students seek funding for Vimy anniversary trip

On April 9th, 1917, Canadians fought and died at the battle of Vimy Ridge, the battle that many historians credit with establishing Canada’s identity. History was made.

18 students from Almonte and District High School want to make their own history, together with Ms. Packham and Mme. Jones, by attending the 100th anniversary celebrations at Vimy Ridge. This experience will be a once in a lifetime opportunity.
