Sai Centre: Ontario Region 2
On the happy occasion of its inauguration, Radio Sai recently invited four SSIO Canada members who have been heavily involved with the Sathya Sai School of Canada for a long-distance interview. As the interview progressed, the history, effort, design, and current activities of the school came into light.
For its annual Sai Spiritual Education field trip this year, the Sathya Sai Centre of Toronto East visited the Gursikh Sabha Canada gurdwara. Previously, end of year field trips had consisted of outdoor games and snacks, but now the Centre has moved to a more spiritually meaningful approach for these activities.
Over a hundred Sai Young Adults from Eastern Canada gathered at the Sathya Sai School in Toronto to take part in the Pre-Canadian Sai Young Adults Festival. The half-day event was held in order to provide young adults from Eastern Canada with a taste of what could be expected during the actual upcoming festival event in Val Morin, Quebec.
SSIO Canada partnered with the nonprofit organization Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup to restore a stretch of the Rouge River. The initiative emerged as a national program in 2002 from the aspirations of a group of employees and volunteers in 1994 from the Vancouver Aquarium who took on the ambitious project to clean up their local beach at Stanley Park.
Sai Young Adults across the country participated in a National Environmental Day by conducting various activities in service to Mother Nature. The young adults led the activities in all regions, with the support of adults and children.
