On February 27, 2017, Saint Michael School celebrated its 3rd annual International Night. It has been a tradition since 2012 to celebrate through International Night the richness of the different cultures that are part of our school community. This event highlights our school identity as one of inclusion, tolerance and acceptance. Since its establishment, this event continues to bring families from different cultural background into our school, and strengthen the ties amongst our families.

During International Night, guests and school families enjoy learning about each country through pictures, slide shows, music, food, crafts, ethnic attire and more. International Night has a history of showcasing 14 to 21 countries from almost every continent in the world. The families that participated represented the country of their ancestral origin. During International Night at Saint Michael School, we celebrate all the things that make us one.
