   Overview of the District Québec Trip

In May 2018, the North Vancouver School District will offer Grade 8 French Immersion students from across the District the opportunity to travel to Québec City for a unique educational experience. This trip, arranged in collaboration with Auberge du Mont, an organization specializing in educational programs for French Immersion students, is rich in linguistic, historical, and cultural experiences.  The District French Immersion trip next year will take place from May 13, 2018 to May 19, 2018.  

The 2018 District Québec Trip will take Grade 8 French Immersion students to the heart of French-Canadian culture.  Students will be accommodated in a mountain resort just a short drive from Old Québec, and supervised by North Vancouver School District employees and Auberge du Mont staff members.  There will be French Canadian guides for all planned activities who will converse with students exclusively in French.

A meeting for parents and students interested in learning more about the 2017 District Québec Trip was held on Tuesday, May 30, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. at the Education Services Centre, 2121 Lonsdale Avenue, in the Mountain View Room on the 5th floor.  The meeting outlined the trip itinerary and provided details on trip costs, supervision, and the expectations of students prior to and during the trip.  Please note that this trip will be limited to 60 students; registration will be done on a first-come, first-served basis beginning June 5, 2017.  (Registrations will not be processed at the parent meeting.)

This unique travel experience will provide Grade 8 French Immersion students with valuable cultural connections to French Canada, and many authentic opportunities to practise their French conversational skills.  We believe that the 2018 District Québec Trip will excite and engage students in their French studies as they continue in the Secondary French Immersion program.  We hope that you will consider this educational opportunity for your child.
