You may have heard on the news this week that there is a mumps outbreak in Toronto. Here’s some further information for students and parents:
Rachel’s World Cultures: The Global Potluck class hosted a visit from Assiatou Diallo on behalf of Passages Canada. Assiatou shared the inspiring story of her journey from Guinea, in West Africa, to Germany, to Montreal, and eventually here to Toronto, where she runs a successful cleaning business employing many newcomers to Canada. We discussed the history of African Heritage Month and the importance of diversity, multiculturalism, and tolerance.
