Arany János Hungarian School
Established in 1975, the weekend school has been in operation every September to mid-June from 9:30 till 1:00 p.m. We accept and welcome registrants not only from first to eighth grade but pre-school children from 3 years of age and up. Since January 2018 we have added classes, named Cirógató, for the youngest students, the babies (with mothers).
The trained primary to intermediate teachers cover subjects such as reading, writing, Hungarian literature, history, geography and physics in the classes. Of course, our students acquire an education about folk-games, -customs, -tales and -songs as well. In addition to education, the school organizes a number of programs for the students, such as the Christmas celebration, the Carnival afternoon, Easter celebrations, the Poem Recital Competition and the closing ceremony. The aim of the Hungarian school is to promote good relations between children and parents, to understand each other, and to familiarize Hungarian children growing up in Canada with our traditions and values. In this way will they become self-aware young men and woment, proud of their origins, with a desire in preserving their Hungarian identity.

Hangyaboly Theatre Company
The Ants in the Hat Hungarian Drama Group of Toronto is a niche initiative. The goal was to create a theatre where not only the audience, but also the actors could learn something new while playing and having fun. We want to teach first and entertain second. That's why we will/were designed to stage plays that not only make you laugh, cry and worry, but also teach you something new.
As an amateur theatre, all our members are amateurs, but they are all very talented women, men and children who want to play with heart and soul.
