We wish all students, families, staff and members of our extended community at Richmond Secondary School enjoy a peaceful Thanksgiving long weekend. Thanksgiving has been celebrated as a holiday in Canada since 1879 and has been held on the second Monday in October since 1957. The purpose of the holiday is to celebrate the bountiful harvest and other blessings of the past year, and to express gratitude for all we have to be thankful for living in Canada.
We hope you are able to spend some time and express your love and gratitude to family and friends on this holiday weekend. Happy Thanksgiving!
