Wm. E. Hay Secondary Campus holds ceremony for Humboldt Broncos

Moment of silence held on Jersey Day to remember the 16 victims of the April 6 bus crash

It was a sombre occasion at Wm. E. Hay Stettler Secondary Campus on Thursday afternoon.

Students gathered in the gymnasium to pay their respects to the 16 people who lost their lives in the Humboldt Broncos bus crash on April 6.

A short memorial video broadcast across the nation on Hockey Night In Canada was played, featuring a slideshow of the victims set to the Tragically Hip’s “Wheat Kings.”

Following the tribute video, a moment of silence was held to pay respects to those who passed away.

Some of the students also donned their favourite hockey jersey as part of the Jersey Day across Canada initiative.

Students were then told of various support services they could reach out to if they feel the need to use them.
