Ecuadorian exchange student Ani Acosta Herrera puts the finishing touches on a carved wooden poppy she made in Tasha Parker’s Art 11 class at Charles Hays Secondary. All art students are making a poppy as a first carving project and to help with an Aboriginal Veterans Memorial art piece students are working on. All art students will work at least 15 minutes on the major project and then the First Art students will finish the work. One thing students learned from Ani is that Ecuador doesn’t have a Remembrance Day as the country has never been involved in a major war.

International Remembrance
