Toronto Estonian School students marked the fall of the wall (21)
Toronto Estonians made up by far the largest ethnic group commemorating the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall in front of the Freedom Arches at Nathan Phillips Square on November 9. 29 students attended on an esto school night, joined by their parents and siblings. Their presence was noted by the politicians as a positive sign that our youth are aware of the fundamental democratic principles that a generation ago contributed to the collapse of history's most evil and tyrannical totalitarian regime. The school's teachers and principal are to be commended highly for underlining that life's most important lessons are often taught outside the classroom.
