African Heritage Month - Black History Matters - Week 3

February is Black History Month. As usual, our teachers and students will be participating in discussions and activities centered around Black History. Alongside other learning, all of our students have been watching a selection series of videos which highlight important people, places and events over history.

We thought you may like to continue these discussion at homes, so we are sharing these links with you as well. Many of these videos have been produced in the United States.  However, these messages and themes resonate with us, here in Canada, as well.
