Black History Month – Karl Subban Presentation

Hello Families,

If you missed Karl Subban’s Black History Month presentation at the school…You have another opportunity to hear it….

Where: Blessed Sacrament School

When: Thursday, March 21st, 2019 at 12:30 PM


He will be speaking on “having a dream”, sharing his story of “The Subban Plan for Success” which he details in his first book entitled, How We Did It. The book chronicles the family journey which lead to all three of his boys playing hockey, PK being the most successful. However, in order to execute that dream, a clear plan had to be in place.

This presentation will motivate and encourage the teachers, parents and students alike. As well as, create awareness of the accomplishments of Blacks and Black Canadians. The key message however, for our assembly will be to share the fact we all have a history, whatever our ancestry. There is a legacy to be celebrated and shared.

Mr. Subban will have copies of his book available.


Below is a link to the Record article & CTV News coverage of Black History Month at John Sweeney.

Thank you again Mr. Karl Subban for the inspiring presentation and showing us the importance of each students potential.
