Leonia HS French Classes Visit Quebec
Over President’s Day weekend, students in Leonia High School’s French classes travelled to Quebec for an engaging language immersion experience. The tour included a visit to Lycée Marcelle-Mallet (Marcelle-Mallet high school), where students paired up with their pen pals to compete in a scavenger hunt through the streets of Quebec City. The French classes will continue to work with their new friends as they complete monthly projects throughout the rest of the school year.
A popular favorite during the trip was an expedition to a dog sledding lodge where students learned the basics of sledding and took turns guiding their own furry four-legged teams through wooded trails. Another outdoor excursion was to Village Vacanes Valcartier where the students hopped in snow tubes for a breathtaking adrenaline rush.
The students also visited a number of museums including the Musée de l’Amérique Francophone, the Plains of Abraham Museum, and the Musée de la Civilisation. Visits to the iconic Chateau Frontenac, the Ice Hotel (Hôtel de Glace), and a cooking class at Provigo le Marché in Charlesbourg provided the students with a well-rounded, exciting Francophone experience.
