Black History Month

DrummondBy: Chanelle Hinds

Black History Month is all about appreciation and celebration. The reason why it is important is because we celebrate and honour the people in the past who have fought for equality and justice such as, Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, Viola Desmond, Harriet Tubman, and many more. Black History Month is celebrated in the United States and Canada in February, and in October in the United Kingdom and Netherlands. Black History Month is not only about admiring Black People, but is also about admiring people of all cultures and races who have fought for justice, and sacrificed their lives for equality.

Greek Heritage Month

March is Greek Heritage Month at the Toronto District School Board and an opportunity to recognize the experiences, contributions and achievements of Greek Canadians.

Chinese Heritage Month

The Toronto District School Board is proud to recognize Chinese Heritage Month (CHM) during the month of February. The theme selected by the CHM Planning Committee for the year is “Year of the Rabbit.” 

During this month, we celebrate the energetic culture and traditions of the Chinese community with students, staff and community members of the Toronto District School Board and the City of Toronto. The Chinese community is integral to the growth and success of the City of Toronto and Canada. Members of the Chinese community represent approximately 10 per cent of the total GTA population and form its second largest visible minority group. Canadians remember and appreciate the Chinese workers who helped build the Canadian Pacific Railway that united our country.

Chinese-Canadians will recognize Chinese New Year on Friday, February 16 with celebrations throughout the month of February .The Chinese New Year is also known as the Spring Festival or the Lunar New Year. This occasion is celebrated over many days which include a range of activities from fireworks displays, drumming, distinctive foods and arts and crafts.
