Event description

Description

Dicovering Canada Youth program (Sesqui) is a uniqe program that will raise newcomer and Syrian refugee families’ awareness of how Canada has welcomed generations of newcomers throughout the last 150 years. Youth will take part in brainstorming discussions to define a common understanding of the meaning behind the Canadian oath, national anthem, and Canadian symbols such as the northern caribou, maple leaf and beaver. Aboriginal culture and the Canadian government will also be introduced and explored. These learnings will be translated into a lasting cultural mosaic painted on the gym walls, serving as a permanent reminder of the past 150 years of Canadian history.


This will be a four week Program, 3 hours every week will be held from on the following dates:

Friday 1st, Canada's history in welcoming refugees.

Friday 8th, Discussing the Canadian oath, anthem and symbols.

Friday 15th, Discovering the Aboriginal culture and the Canadian Goverment.

Friday 22nd, Brainstorming and painting a cultural mosiac.
