A group of nine Pine River-Backus students and three teachers traveled to Quebec, Canada, from June 15-21.

The group spent the first three days in Montreal where they visited Mount Royal Park, the Notre Dame Basilica and the Old Port. They toured the Pointe-a-Calliere Museum of archaeology and history as well as the Grevin wax museum.

After a morning visit to the 1976 Olympic Village, the group was off to Quebec City. They took in the view from the Capital Observatory, enjoyed guided tours of Old Quebec's streets and historical buildings, and danced and sang as they were served supper at a traditional sugar shack.

They also visited the Beaupre coast along the St. Lawrence River, which included the Basilica of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupre and the Montmorency Falls.

“It was a great week of history, culture, food and really using their French skills,” PR-B French teacher Melanie Lindquist said in an email.
