Leaders of local cultural communities want Manitoba’s largest school division to celebrate its multicultural classrooms by officially recognizing heritage months throughout the academic year.

“The most effective way to deal with differencesSteve Russell, racism and so on, is really by talking and meeting with each other, and that’s a concept we should be promoting, I think, in all schools,” said Art MikiThose who would get AstraZeneca vaccines from Monday include medical workers and people in long-term care facilities, director of the Japanese Cultural Association of Manitoba and a member of the Asian Heritage Society of Manitoba.

Miki is among the community leaders who recently spoke in favour of a motion to have the Winnipeg School Division build on its current cultural programming to endorse all heritage and history months and weeks that are proclaimed by the province.

Raising awareness about various heritage months would build understanding between students from different communities and help marginalized students learn more about their own history, culture and language, he added.
