Last week, the Grade 7 and 8 classes went on their year end adventure to Quebec City. Upon arriving in Quebec City, students began their military training accompanied by British Officers at the Martello Towers where they learned about the living conditions of the soldiers and 1812 military lifestyle. The activities for the next day included taking in the breathtaking scenery at Canyon Sainte-Anne and the Parc de la Chute Montmorency, learning about the living conditions of soldiers during the 1759 battle on the Plains of Abraham under the command of generals Wolfe and Montcalm, and then finishing the day with a Disco cruise on board the Louis-Jolliet enjoying a view of Quebec City from the St. Lawrence River. After a guided tour of the Citadelle the next morning, the group visited the Observatoire de la Capitale and saw an impressive view of the city from 750 m above sea level, before spending time in historic Old Quebec. In the afternoon, Quebec’s military past was explained through an impressive model of the city at the Musee du Fort. The last evening was spent enjoying lively entertainment and traditional Québécois cuisine at the Chemin du Roy sugar shack.
