Adventures in Kapuskasing

Yorkies in Kapuskasing, OntarioA group of Grade 9-12’s just got back from Kapuskasing, a small town in Northern Ontario. The girls were there on a SEVEC French Language & Culture Exchange.

By exploring another community, the girls had a chance to strengthen their French language skills and develop cultural awareness. The SEVEC program also hopes to break down social barriers and improve self-confidence in youth.

The trip included ice fishing, cross-country skiing scavenger hunts in -20 weather, skiing and the winter carnival!
