Sister schools

Article and photos by Jared Story

Two Israeli educators received a warm welcome to Winnipeg courtesy of Brock Corydon School students.

On Oct. 5, Brock Corydon held an assembly for Tiki Porat and D’ganit Portal, the principal and vice-principal, respectively, of Ramat Korazim in northern Israel. Ramat Korazim is Brock Corydon’s sister school.

Brock Corydon students greeted their guests with dance and songs sung in Hebrew. The nursery to Grade 6 school has a Hebrew bilingual program.

Brock Corydon principal Ara Morris said the River Heights school’s relationship with Ramat Korazim started 15 years ago through the Jewish Agency’s Partnership2Gether program.

“This year we have the principal and vice-principal of Ramat Korazim and last year two of our teachers went over there,” Morris said. “D’ganit was here two years ago and you could hear the students today saying ‘D’ganit! D’ganit!’ because they go into every single class, they spend time in all the classrooms and they teach lessons.

“They also share about Israel, about their school and we look at the commonalities between the schools. It’s pretty remarkable the commonalities we have between our two schools even though we were so far apart.”

In addition to spending a week with Brock Corydon students, Porat and Portal took part in a community event at Desserts Plus.

“Every visit is to strengthen the relationship and the connection (between the two schools). We try to deepen the connection,” Porat said.
