Media Advisory: Minister Davis to Announce Expansion of Sharing Our Cultures

The Honourable Bernard Davis, Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Labour, joined by the Honourable Al Hawkins, Minister of Education and Early Childhood Development, and the Honourable Perry Trimper, MHA for Lake Melville, will announce funding to expand Sharing Our Cultures throughout the province at 11:15 a.m. tomorrow (Friday, November 16) at the Lawrence O’Brien Arts Centre, Mealy Mountain Collegiate, 1 Voisey Drive, Happy Valley-Goose Bay.

Founded by Dr. Lloydetta Quaicoe, Sharing Our Cultures engages students from diverse cultural backgrounds to foster belonging and acceptance regardless of ethnicity, culture, language, ability, or religion. Through weekly meetings in schools and workshops, youth develop friendships and a sense of belonging while improving their skills in language, literacy, and leadership.
