Embracing Diversity: African & Chinese Heritage Month at WLMAC

When you think of February, what do you think about? Is it the frigid temperatures and annoying slush, or is the promise of romance with Valentine’s Day right around the corner? In Canada, this month means celebrating two unique and special cultures. February marks the African (Black History) and Chinese Heritage Month.
Historically, these groups have contributed to Canada in a myriad of ways and had to survive many hardships, such as racism and discrimination. However, their cultures today are still thriving, with their contributions impacting our daily lives. From sports to music, our Canadian culture has been greatly influenced by both African and Chinese heritage.
African Canadians have contributed to the development of Canada dating back to the earliest European Settlements. From the Underground Railroad to modern-day immigration, Black Canadians have played a pivotal role in shaping the cultural landscape of Canada.
Similarly, Chinese Canadians have played vital roles in the development of infrastructure through contributions dating back to Canada’s Canadian Pacific Railway. These endeavours have worked toward culminating the rich history and cultural heritage of Chinese Canadians, which in turn have influenced various social aspects of Canada.
At Mackenzie, we proudly celebrate Chinese and African (Black History) Month. Throughout February, our school community is working together to plan several events and activities.
What’s Happening at WLMAC?
-> Black History Month Assembly on Feb 13th
-> Black Student Alliance Symposium Feb 27th
-> BSA Meetings
-> RoShamBo - A School-wide game of Rock-Paper-Scissors, a game originating from China
-> Assorted Equity Activities
