Evening of Diversity

Did you know that 175 of our students speak another language at home, other than English?

Did you know that we have 275 students at Maple Grove who were not born in Canada?

At Maple Grove, our records show that we have students who were born all over the world, including Australia, Bangladesh, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Egypt, England, Germany, Hong Kong, Iraq, Ireland, Japan, Lebanon, Norway, Pakistan, Peru, Poland, Romania, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, UK, and USA.

We would like to celebrate our cultural differences and learn more about each other, but we need your help!

We invite you to share your culture with our community on Wednesday April 19th at 7:00pm at the school, as part of our WE Schools Week.  We hope to have all areas of the world represented for our students and their parents to explore and learn about.

What can you share about your culture? Customs, traditions, songs, dances, foods, clothing, values, beliefs, languages, etc? We want to know it all!  If you are interested in contributing something from your culture to our “Evening of Diversity”, please click here to complete a questionnaire providing the details of your contribution, and we will be in touch with the details.

If you would like to contribute to sharing a part of your culture, please fill out the form by Wednesday March 29, 2017. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Caruso at the school (carusor@hdsb.ca).

Details on the evening will be sent to all families once we have it all organized!
