Wednesday February 26 th , 2020 was Anti-Bullying Day where staff and faculty at both Mississauga and Toronto campus locations encouraged everyone to practice kindness and stand against bullying! Classes were visited and told about bullying, letting our students know that they are not alone and there is help and support available to them always. Some staff and students wore pink since pink is the color associated with raising awareness for this ever so important topic. We can all battle against this issue and stop bullying!
Today staff and students celebrated cultural diversity in both Toronto campus and Mississauga campus, where everyone was able to enjoy some delectable donuts and also learned a little bit about this wonderful tradition.
Diversity is what makes Canada, the place we call home so great. We are privileged to have a plethora of different cultures in our country and cities that allows us to always learn something new and interesting, practically every day.
Pączki Day is a time that people of Polish decent traditionally observe the day before Ash Wednesday. Paczki’s are like little jam filled deep fried donuts and historically they were made so that people could use up all sugar, eggs, butter and lard before Lent, during which folks give up an indulgence for 40 days.
Happy Pączki Day everyone!
