Citizenship presentation

writing Arabic

Sam Odrowski

Fifyan Canoon, who recently immigrated to Canada from Iraq, showed Grade 5 students at St. Francis School what Arabic writing looks like and how it is read during a presentation for Citizenship Week (Oct. 8-14). Two other town residents who immigrated to Canada also spoke about their experience and answered questions. Afterwards, the class participated in a Canadian citizenship re-affirmation ceremony.
