Black Heritage Month At SJN!!!

On Tuesday, February 8th, in celebration of Black Heritage Month, our Grade 1 through 8 students will be part of a virtual presentation hosted by D.O. Gibson, called “Black Canadian 365 Conference”. Entitled “Change the World,” the event will cover the contributions of African Canadians Viola Desmond, Black contributors to hockey, and black musical contributions from Oscar Peterson to Maestro Fresh Wes to Drake. D.O Gibson will speak and rap throughout the performance.   Our students will be a part of the  virtual audience, which is expected to include over 50,000 students across Canada.  A great way to celebrate the contributions of Black Canadians in celebration of Black Heritage Month!
