INTER-CULTURAL EXCHANGE VISIT TO
SAINTE-FOY CÉGEP IN QUEBEC CITY
March 22-24, 2002

As part of their Integrative project class taught by Mark Prentice, a group of Vanier students took part in a three day visit to Sainte-Foy Cégep. They were received by students of Sainte-Foy Cégep who are also part of an integrative project class on the theme of inter-cultural communication. The visit was made up of workshops and exchanges on inter-cultural communication as well as cultural activities organized by the Quebec students in order to give us some insight into aspects of Quebec culture.

The following photographs document some aspects of this visit.


Friday, March 22



Here we all are a few minutes after our arrival at the Ste-Foy Cegep.


For our first supper, students from both classes cooked us up a Quebec delicacy ...







Shepherds pie! In the college kitchen.



Then we sat down and enjoyed this very tasty meal.







We were also fortunate to have Québec entertainer Michel Faubert put on a show for us.

On Saturday we started the day off with a series of workshops in the morning,
so there is nothing like a little stretching to get the day going...














The workshops conducted by our own Dany Brown and Doug Miller
were a resounding success!



After a full morning of workshops, we set off to Old Québec for a guided tour of the city conducted by renowned Québec historian Jean Provencher (in the red jacket)







Here is a view of the St-Lawrence from the Citadel



(where some students mentioned that they were cold...)



Our little group passing by the famous Chateau Frontenac.





Here is a group of us waiting to start our visit of the Memoires exhibition
at the Musée de la Civilization



and then visiting the six stages of the exhibit











On Saturday evening, students from Ste-Foy and Vanier put on quite an evening of entertainment...
