|Sinclair Laird School started off the school year by inviting all the parents and students to a Multicultural Picnic. The
turn-out was amazing. All the parents were so grateful to have been invited to participate with their children. Parents, teachers
and students sat on blankets and shared their ethnic foods with everyone. What a treat! The children enjoyed having their parents
at their school. Grade 5 and 6 students interviewed the parents and teachers and found that a good time was had by all. The kids
played games with their friends in the schoolyard and the parents were able to meet their childrens' new friends and their parents.
Pictures were taken and the staff agreed that this would be a wonderful activity to repeat next fall in order to reinforce our goal
to have parents, staff and children working and playing together.|
