The month of May is celebrated as Asian Heritage Month in Canada, and South Asian Heritage Month in Ontario. Each May, the Durham Educators’ Network for South Asians (DENSA) hosts an event that salutes Asian and South Asian culture and heritage in innovative and unique ways.
In celebration of South Asian and Asian Heritage Month (May), over 140 Durham District School Board (DDSB) students in Grades 7-10 participated in the first ever South Asian and Asian Student Voice Conference called Be You: Explore, Discover & Re-imagine.
On the evening of January 24, Durham District School Board educators and families joined together at Terry Fox Public School in Ajax to celebrate Tamil Heritage Month.
Organized by the Durham Educators’ Network for South Asians (DENSA), the Tamil Heritage Month Gala offered a night of lively entertainment, social engagement, and learning.
As number of South Asian families in Durham grows, new teacher network aims to reach out.
