Victoria International Ballet Academy is honoured to have welcomed WWII veteran Mr. Gerry Grossman to our school on November 6, 2019.
Students of our Professional Day School Division (Arts and Science Academy of Canada) sat in silence as Mr. Grossman told his heartfelt story about WWII. The children gifted our heroic guest with flowers, thank you cards, hugs, poems, and of course a dance. It warmed our hearts to see the 93 year old veteran smile from ear to ear when our children performed for him.
Thank you to our veterans for your sacrifice and bravery, it is because of you that our children live a wonderful life today!
A special thank you to The Memory Project by Historica Canada and Global News.
