An award-winning Remembrance Day essay

Rachel Bliss, a Grade 6 student at Our Lady of Perpetual Help, placed in the top 10 across Canada in the most recent Remembrance Day Literary Contest, sponsored by the Royal Canadian Legion.

Bliss’s essay, The Story of Lou, won first in her school, first in the district, first in the zone and was chosen as B.C.’s junior entry as it advanced to judging in Ottawa, where it received honourable mention.
