French students from Golden Secondary School are participating in an exchange with a group from l’École Polyvalante LaRuche in Magog, Quebec.

The students from Quebec came to Golden and spent a week in and around the town. The group went on trips to Radium Hot Springs, disc golf at Go Organic Sports Ranch in Parson, skiing at Lake Louise, a day in classes at GSS, a day in Banff and they also visited the Northern Lights Wolf Centre and the Golden Cinema.  Local students will be going to Magog to stay with their partners for a week of activities from May 5 to 12.

Some goals of this exchange are to show students what life is like in a different part of the country, and to increase their competencies in speaking French.
