When Tête-à-la-Baleine and St Augustine meet – Quelques mots sur un échange étudiant

From June 13th to 15th, 5 students from grades 5-6 from Tête-à-la-Baleine were in St Augustine for a cultural trip. They were paired with students from St Augustine and they stayed at their place. Ils ont fait plusieurs activités, entre twins et avec les autres élèves de 4-5-6e année. Ils ont passé une journée de découverte de la culture innue à Pakua Shipi. Tout le monde a fait des efforts pour pratiquer sa langue seconde. Here is what they wrote about their experience before they said goodbye last Friday.

The family were very welcoming with us. That was fun because we made some new friends. For some of us, it was our first time in St Augustine in summer. The twins were very nice with us. The visit was too short. Thank you to all the families for welcoming us in to their home.

On était excité de voir nos “twins”. Les deux jours étaient très amusants parce que on voir les nouveaux amis. On a joué beaucoup de jeux c’était très fun! Et on a le fun d’aller acheter des “slushys”. On est allé pour les ‘rides’ dans le bicyclette. On a aimé voir nos twins!
