Community events, activities and gatherings are a great way to connect with others. Getting together with members of families is an essential factor that helps to create strong bonds, connections, and relationships in the community. It provides opportunities for participation, skills development, volunteering and social, cultural economic and environmental developments. It is helpful in coping with challenges, instill a feeling of security, inculcate family values, fill kids with confidence, and much more. By arranging the Family Park Day, Toronto Bangla School brought families together, especially children and kids, to improve their learnings, activities, skills and feel free from stresses, especially during the pandemic period. Toronto Bangla School is committed to improve the community buildings in future through these types of activities.
