On March 19th, 2017, Champlain’s CEGEP students hosted a special event to celebrate cultural diversity, with a specific focus on Continuing Education students and their children. The idea was to sensitize Champlain’s CEGEP students to the growing Continuing Education community within Champlain, while also celebrating its natural multiculturalism. Ultimately, this culminated in an event titled “Folktales Around the World,” made possible by the collaboration of Champlain’s Multicultural Committee and Student Services’ Andreanne Pelletier, and also thanks to a grant from the Ministère de l’Éducation et de l’Enseignement supérieur. The event featured a number of activities around the theme of multiculturalism and diversity, including storytelling, arts & crafts, foods from the various countries represented within Continuing Education, and even a piñata.
