This year we have asked a variety of community associations in Ottawa to share their culture with us throughout the evening. Currently, we will be having our First Nations/Indigenous community helping with opening ceremonies and a number of performances by the Colombian, Indonesian, Croatian, and Filipino community. Also, to further show the diversity within Holy Trinity, our students will be preparing a variety of cultural foods for guests to sample throughout the evening. Food tickets can be purchased at 1 for $1.00 or 5 for $4. All proceeds from the event will go to UNICEF Canada to help those affected by the various environmental disasters that occurred in the fall of 2017.

We ask that you invite friends and family to come join us to help celebrate our school diversity and donate generously to a wonderful cause.
