A group of students is visiting Nelson from Québec City until Sept. 23 and staying with families of the Nelson Waldorf School’s Class 8.

The students are here to experience signature local events such as the kokanee salmon run and will learn about our environment through hikes, canoeing, geography lessons and a camping trip to Garland Bay.

Some highlights of the trip are the friendships they are creating, the opportunity to practice each other’s languages and a chance to broaden their experience and knowledge of other regions.

This visit is facilitated by SEVEC, 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 to develop mutual respect and understanding through programs which explore their heritage, language and community.”

This February the Nelson Waldorf students will enjoy a reciprocal trip to visit their new friends in Québec City.
