The first Sikhs came to Canada in 1902 as part of a Hong Kong military contingent travelling to the coronation of Edward VII. The first Sikh immigrants arrived in 1904 and by 1908, when an immigration ban was imposed, more than 5000 South Asians, over 90% of them Sikhs, had arrived in British Columbia. From then on, the population gradually dwindled to about 2000. Most who remained were Sikhs.
Our forefathers were very strong often facing discrimination, mistreatment and assimilation. We have chosen the Trickster Theme of: Canada 150 – The Many Faces of Canada, to tell the story of the Sikhs in Canada from past to the present. Students will be immersed in their cultural history through stories from community members and historical associations. Through this immersion, students will gain a stronger emotional connection to the community and the community will have a stronger connection to Khalsa School Calgary.

How to create projects
Only a school site admin can set up new projects. Ask you teacher to get help in setting up a project page. Once set up you can write blog articles to support your project.
New Projects can be of many types: an event, a take action project, a study, or a Trickster Residency.
