RIA Remembers



On November 7th, Random Island Academy remembered all of those brave people who gave so much for us on so many different occasions.  We had performances from our Primary, Elementary, and intermediate choirs, along with our high school band; we also had performances from our Senior Drama Group, and our very own Mr. Blackmore and Mr. Miller.  We  would like to thank all of our guests from the Newfoundland Rangers, the Random Lions Club, the Random Air Cadets 567 Squadron, and the Salvation Army.  To all the veterans, the soldiers still serving to protect us, and all those who made the ultimate sacrifice…we thank you!
