Today marks the final day of our tour, and the feeling is bittersweet. Although we shared in some amazing experiences, the students (and chaperones) are ready to come home and share stories and the many pictures! The tour was capped off in Ottawa/Gatineau with a visit to the Parliament of Canada, the Canadian War Museum and a guided tour of the National Gallery of Canada. It has been a busy week and we look forward to relaxing and sharing our many stories and fun-filled experiences!
During our last day in Québec, we were fortunate to take part in many fun and educational activities. We visited Old-Québec and spent time in the shops of "Quartier du Petit-Camplain", visited the Citadelle and our favourite activity, an evening spent at a traditional sugar shack! At the sugar shack, we learned the modern and traditional ways of harvesting maple syrup, enjoyed a family-style meal and listened to a live musician. Some of our students even joined him on stage to play the spoons and dance!
A lovely stroll down some of the oldest streets in North America and allowed us to learn the history of how Québec city was born. We also had the opportunity to enjoy traditional food like poutine, pâté chinois and ragout!
It's been a busy couple of days in Montréal, full of sightseeing, great food and a little bit of laser tag! Tomorrow we say au revoir to Montréal and bonjour to Québec City where we will learn more about traditional Québecois culture.
Mr. Hardman's grade 9 Robotics class have been testing out our new Lego Mindstorm EV3 robots! After mastering the Spheros (and tearing up the hallways on our upper floor), the master builders are working their construction and programming magic. More to come!
Our math department and student council celebrated Pi Day by selling slices of pie and by having student purchase the opportunity to pie their favorite teacher. In one lunch hour we raise close to $300 for our Free the Children Campaign. Above, Daria slams Mr. Hardman with a tasty whip cream pie. Thanks to Mr. Loewen, Mr. Marquart, Ms Coutu and Mr. Hardman for sacrificing one for the team.
