Sts Vladimir & Olga UGC Church Ukrainian School
The Ukrainian Saturday school at Sts Vladimir and Olga Ukrainian Catholic church in Windsor welcomes students between the ages of 6 to 12 from September to May. The classes use the “Nova” language program (by Prof. Olenka Bilash, University of Alberta) and the “Tyt i Tam” readers’ series. Children play games and learn language skills in a fun and interactive way. The focus is on learning basic language skills and developing a sense of pride in the Ukrainian Heritage. Ukrainian history and geography are emphasized along with the Ukrainian Canadian history. Children learn about various holiday traditions, the students participate in St. Nicholas and Shevchenko concerts during the school year. As part of their involvement in the community, the students attend the annual Holodomor commemoration and lay a wreath at the Holodomor monument at Jackson Park.
