Dear Parents/Guardians,

The Grade 8 trip to Quebec City was a tremendous success! The tour director and “Scooter” (our bus driver) commended our students for their great spirit and respectful manner.

Please enjoy a few images from the trip:

Lower town: the old historical site

Tubing: the Kids had a blast!

Overlooking the magnificient Saint Lawrence River (Fleuve Saint Laurent)

Yes, the Ice Hotel does exist (amazing)

Dog sledding (quite the adventure!)
