      Hi there Charlotte, yes! We do multicultural days. We would love to hear from you about what sort of assistance you are looking for. It would be best if you directly contact our Community Connection Coordinator – Coby Piazza (communityconnection@kcris.ca), or our Diversity Coordinator – Graham Specht (graham@kcris.ca)
