'Minga' is the Ecuadorian word for a call to action and our club focuses solely on social justice. We take action by helping to bring hope to people from either a few streets away, or countries apart, as when it comes to social justice, distance doesn't matter. From providing food hampers for underprivileged families at Christmas, to helping bring in a Syrian refugee family into Canada in 2016, Minga’s team has been active and engaged for 10 years. We have strong ties with various organizations including Free the Children and collaborate on different campaign events throughout the year to help raise money or bring awareness to a certain issues around the world. We also host school wide social events such as the Locker Bay Holiday Festival, Teacher Karaoke and the annual MPC Talent Show.
We strive to make this world a better place in creative and innovative ways, which is why if you have a passion for social justice, join the Minga Social Justice Club!
The African-Canadian Club (also known as, The Afro-Canadian Club) meets regularly, once a week at lunch time, to discuss and celebrate black lives and the black lives that came before us. We discuss and share the accomplishments as well as the struggles, socio-political issues, and identity issues within the community of people of African descent.
We have also attended the African Diaspora Conference in the past which is put on by the TDSB each year, and is a weekend trip to Windsor, Ontario to visit the Black History Museum and engage in various black-focussed workshops and activities.
Extra-curricular activities are essential within this Club. Black History Month Assemblies, Food Drives, and Taste of the Caribbean Lunches are major activities that members contribute to every year.
Our club welcomes anyone and everyone from all cultures, races, and religious convictions who are interested in black-focussed issues.
The Teacher Advisors are: Mr. Limerick, Ms. Sattaur, and Mr. Wyse.
