Eighteen Prince Rupert Middle School French immersion students home-stayed in Quebec last February for only $100 thanks to a federal exchange student program that Mme. Adam participated in. This month and pictured above, the Quebec host students visited Rupert in exchange and stayed for a week. The students kayaked and canoed in Kloiya Bay, explored Dodge Cove and Butze Rapids and enjoyed potluck dinners. Lasting friendships were formed in both French and English, said Yuriko Riesen of the Canadian Parents for French (CPF) Prince Rupert Chapter. Aaliyah Mahboubi photo.
