SRB High School’s InterWeb Club celebrates cultural diversity


 InterWeb Club leaders Malika, Summer and Asma


"For its very first year, InterWeb Club has been a huge success. From learning about different cultures to starting new friendships, InterWeb has brought students from SRB HS together."

- Asma, Co-President of Sir Robert Borden High School,
InterWeb Club

Every Tuesday at lunch 20-30 students in Sir Robert Borden High School’s InterWeb Club meet to organize activities to bring together students from different backgrounds. Some events include guest speakers from embassies and the United Nations, seminars by international students about their home countries, Q&A information sessions on study abroad and exchange programs, “Language Cafés”, and extracurricular activities such as origami, African dance, field trips and fund- raisers. The aim of the club is to help everyone in the SRB school community be aware of cultural diversity and become more interculturally competent.

The unique name of the club comes from the idea that the club connects everyone in a “web,” just like the Internet. The club’s slogan: “InterWeb — connecting everyone better than the Internet.”

Prompted by a request from SRB students enrolled in the OCDSB International Certificate Program, SRB teacher Xiaoxiao Zhao launched the InterWeb Club in September 2014 and serves as the school club’s teacher advisor.

Future plans include organizing activities that encourage international students to be involved in school life, and starting a Model United Nations event.
