This week the Nelson Waldorf School Class 8, guided and supported by teacher Tanya Thayer, set off with great anticipation for Québec City.

This visit is facilitated by the Society for Education Visit and Exchanges in Canada/Société Éducative De Visites et d’Échanges au Canada, whose mission is to create educational opportunities for Canadian youth that explore their heritage, language and community. They will be spending a week with the students, and now friends, from the Collège Stanislas de Québec who visited Nelson last September.

The youth will experience activities and excursions together such as visiting the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec; enjoying a traditional game that recreates an epic snow battle based on the film La Guerre des Tuques; and most of all, celebrating the internationally renowned Carnival de Québec. This exchange has provided them with the opportunity to experience a broader social and cultural consciousness, and also the profound experience of exploring the world together with joy and enthusiasm.
