The Ajax Welcome Centre opened its doors to Grade 6 students from Trafalgar Castle School on October 19. The class joined in conversation with students from Mr. Cooper’s Level IV English class and practiced their interviewing skills! The Trafalgar students felt they made real connections with the adults in the class. Grade 6 Trafalgar student Abby shared, “We all had such a great time. Everyone there was so nice and we wish we could go back and visit them again.” The hugs students gave as they left the Centre were certainly a testament to the connections they experienced.
Everyone learned something from each other, as well. Grade 6 Trafalgar student Mia said, “We all learned about different people’s experiences, countries and perspectives on Canada.” Her classmate M.G. added, “It was a real eye-opening experience.”
Grade 6 students at Trafalgar Castle School are currently learning about the diverse experiences and perspectives of different communities that make up Canada.
