Ukrainian Language Arts

Students in the Ukrainian language program share their culture with our school community through such activities as writing Easter eggs (pysanky), a Ukrainian collection of books, encyclopedia and art in the library; the presence of Byzantine rite icons in our chapel as well as the attendance of our Ukrainian rite clergy at religious services throughout the year and Ukrainian artwork in the common area and door signs in Ukrainian for the office, library, chapel and gym. 

Students successfully completing the courses are well-prepared to use their language skills in social or business encounters with Ukrainians in Canada and abroad.  They are eager to preserve their heritage and culture through the use of language and the celebration of the many traditions they have experienced over the years.
