This past week, Grade 9 students took a trip to Québec City as part of their French and History curricula. Chaperoned by the entire French Department staff as well as Judaic Studies Teacher Rabbi David Malca, students visited the People of Quebec…Then and Now exhibition at the Musée de la civilisation where they viewed both ancient and modern artefacts. Students also visited the elegant Parliament Building and learned about its architecture and political history. They were also given a tour of the National Assembly and the “Red room,” two important sites in Quebec democracy. For the duration of the trip, students explored the legendary (and unique in North America) fortifications of Old Québec and walked around the picturesque streets of the Upper Town. The trip ended at the Château Frontenac, where the students took in a magnificent view of the St. Lawrence River along Dufferin terrace. Despite the cold and the wind, students had a great time exploring this beautiful historical city!
