Wife Of Canadian Governor General Visits Haifa School

We were delighted to host Her Excellency Sharon Johnston, wife of the Canadian Governor General in our Haifa Preschool on Thursday!

The children were so excited to invite Her Excellency into their classroom and share with her what they wanted to be when they grew up, sing a song (in Hebrew, Arabic, and English of course) and hear about Canada. Afterwards the adults sat together to talk about the process building an inclusive and diverse community.


Her Excellency was very gracious and said:

"I can tell that the children here are happy and comfortable and can express themselves freely ... They are clearly raised in a special way, rooted in the values of dialogue ... It is beautiful to see."

Thank you to Her Excellency, the Canadian Embassy, and the entire delegation for taking the time to hear our story!
