Lamont, AB. — Representatives of the media are invited to join Lamont Elementary for its annual Ukrainian Easter Breakfast on April 13.

Students in the Ukrainian options program, grades 1-6, are hosting a delicious hot breakfast for the school community to celebrate the Easter season. On the menu are the traditional favourites such as boiled eggs, cottage cheese, ham, sausage, fruit, and, most exciting, homemade paska. Before the breakfast begins, each student will receive a traditional Ukrainian Easter basket—filled with student-made paska, a pysanka and a special treat—that Edmonton-based Bishop David Motiuk will bless.

“The Easter Breakfast at the school is always a special celebration for both our students and our families,” says Valerie Nimchuk, one of the event organizers at Lamont Elementary. “It’s a memorable day that allows everyone to experience Ukrainian culture and traditions. Ultimately, that’s our goal, to facilitate ways for students to experience Ukrainian culture first-hand.”
