Grade 2 students from two different Winnipeg religious schools are aiming to build cross cultural bridges.
Students from Al-Hijra Islamic School spent Tuesday morning with their new friends at the Winnipeg Mennonite Elementary School — the second outing of a cultural exchange between the two schools that started after the Quebec City Mosque attack.
They've been talking about it for years, said Lawrence Hamm, the Winnipeg Mennonite Elementary and Middle Schools superintendent.
