The 11th and 12th grade French students had the amazing opportunity to travel to Quebec for four days on October 20-23rd. Accompanied by chaperones, Mrs. Hannah Klein, Mr. Michael Buonomo and Mrs. Marianne Slevin, the students embarked on their 8+ hour bus drive bright and early on Thursday morning. They arrived first in Montreal, where they were able to tour the Radio Canada/CBC television studios and even see live broadcasts in French. The students spent one night in Montreal and, before heading north to Quebec City for two nights, they were able to visit Mont Royal to see a spectacular view of the city. Although the weather did not exactly cooperate, the students were kept busy throughout their stay and were in great spirits. Their activities included a guided tour of old Quebec, a visit to the Sainte-Anne Basilica, a cooking class, a visit to a real "maple sugar shack" and a favorite of the students--an exploration of the magnificent Parc de la Chute Montmorency, with its falls higher than those of Niagara Falls. It was a unique cultural experience for the students that allowed them to immerse themselves in the French culture without having to leave North America.
