Coming to Canada

The Grade 6 students are in the process of completing interviews with family members who were immigrants to Canada. The students were lucky enough to hear Mrs. Badler share a monologue about her immigrant story and her arrival to Canada from South Africa in 1996. She explained the challenges she experienced living under the apartheid regime, and described the political unrest in the 1970’s and 1980’s. The students enjoyed hearing about some of the obstacles she encountered when she arrived in Canada, such as snow days, buying milk from the grocery store, and teaching math using words like “nort” instead of “zero”. A huge thank-you to Mrs. Badler for sharing her immigrant story with us!
