Each year, throughout Black History Month, Richland Academy students broaden their understanding of Black Canadian History by participating in insightful and purposeful class discussions and activities, including a special Black History Month assembly. At this year’s assembly, hosted by our Grade 2 class, Richland students shone brightly as they shared a wonderful assortment of poetry, storytelling and music, including a drumming performance from our Grade 4 students.
Commemorating the achievements of important people and events in Black History gives our students the opportunity to experience an important part of their Canadian Heritage. Engaging them in deep and thoughtful dialogue heightens their appreciation for Black Canadian History and fosters respectful, global-minded citizens. Congratulations to the Richland Community for continuing to keep Black History alive in our schools.
