ABOUT MINI-COLLEGE

“Mini-College” bilingual program traces its beginnings to summer courses in St. Andrew`s College. The most popular among the students undoubtedly was the summer school for youth.This program, which consisted of Ukrainian language, history, dances, and literature courses,involved the Ukrainian students from all parts of Canada and some from the United States ranging from ages 13 to 18. The program intended to give the Ukrainian children general knowledge about the cultural and spiritual background of their ancestors, as much as it was directed towards the cultivation of national identity and cultural consciousness. To determine this program as a successful one allows the single scale reason. According to some statistics in the period between 1947 and 1984 this program was attended by more than 1500 pupils.
“Mini-College” bilingual program, which is a successor of the summer school for youth and works in the same direction. This program works to guide the new generation of Ukrainian Canadian children ages 6 to 13 to the awareness of their cultural background and social identity. This school is even more active than the summer courses since it claims to have from 75 to 95 children every year.

MINI-COLLEGE 2018

This Summer, St. Andrew's College conducted a very successful three week "Mini-College 2018" program, from July 16th to August 3rd, for over 90 energetic children between the ages of 6 and 13.

Guest artist Thor Drahun, and choreographer Less San Miguel helped the children to discover and demonstrate their creative potential through a variety of different art and dance projects.

The main goal of "MiniCollege 2018" was to encourage children to learn the Ukrainian language, culture and traditions by providing a fun learning environment.

The theme for this year was 'Flora and Fauna of Ukraine' (Plants and Animals of Ukraine). Children had an opportunity to learn about the diverse and unique nature of Ukraine. Programming was focused on Ukrainian language development skills through a wide variety of activities including vocabulary enhancements, arts and crafts, Ukrainian national songs and dances, sports, games and excursions. Our goal was to get children acquainted with plant and animal life, and teach them about the importance of a healthy environment. "Mini-College 2018" participants enjoyed excursions to Beeproject Apiaries, Fort White Alive, Deer Meadow Farms, Fun Mountain and Children's Museum. At the end of the program, each child received specially prepared booklets and gifts, as well as the art projects they made during their arts and crafts classes.

LIBRARY

ANNUAL REPORT


The St. Andrew’s College Library is a respected source of knowledge utilized by students of Theology, the Centre for Ukrainian Canadian Studies, the University of Manitoba, as well as those interested in Orthodox and Eastern Christian Theology. Our Library is open to members of the Ukrainian community, researchers and academics from around the world. One such academic is Dr. Olena Vdovyna, a visiting research scholar at the Centre for Ukrainian Canadian Studies, whose current focus is on Ivan Ohienko and his Medieval Ukrainian Studies.

During this reporting period, along with routine duties dealing with library patrons and publishers, ordering and cataloguing acquisitions, and physical maintenance of the library and its holdings, the library staff also undertook the following very important projects.

During the summer months, with the assistance of Theology Student Ivan Zhovnych, an important project was completed – the organization of the collections of journals and newspapers, which were held in the wooden cupboards lining the walls of the basement multipurpose room. Upon completion of the next phase of this project we will have an inventory catalogue as well the capability to offer some of our journals and newspapers online.

We are proceeding, as time allows, with an ongoing earlier project - a compilation and cataloguing of our duplicates holdings.

The library staff regularly prepare thematic showcase displays which exemplify the life and traditions of the Ukrainian people.

Library staff members participate in the many organized St. Andrew’s College activities.
