Flags Lowered to Half-mast

posted in: Home Page News | 0

Monck Public School is lowering our national and provincial flags from September 27 to 30 to honour police and peace officers and their contribution to our community. In 1998 the Canadian Government officially proclaimed the last Sunday of September of every year as Police and Peace Officers’ National Memorial Day. On January 17, 2003 Canadian Heritage declared the last Sunday of September of every year as a nation wide flag half-masting on all federal buildings and establishments in Canada, including the Peace Tower, from sunrise to sunset in honour of our fallen officers.
