Praise from educators

“It is always difficult for teachers to ensure that culturally relevant materials [are] covered in a professional way, we don’t often have access to what we need. To have this program relieves our stress and benefits the students.”

Janet Clattenburg, Derry West Village Public School

“It is necessary for our students to see their culture reflected in their educational experience and to expose all students to cultures other than their own. This is how we learn from each other and break down barriers between students.”

Miriam Weickert, Mount Royal Public School

“Never have I seen such enthusiasm and excitement for strong, well-curated workshops for youth… The art, dance and other workshops all celebrated the positive aspects of Asian/South Asian heritage which are needed in so many schools.”

Wahid Khan, South Asian Teacher Liaison, YRDSB

“Teachers are human and we don’t know everything. Even with a solid background in a particular art form, we can always learn from other professionals. What a great opportunity to explore along with the students. Role modelling at its best.”

Anastasia Blagodarova, James Grieve Public School
