More than 40 parents attended Monday's PAC meeting for a presentation on last year's Grade 7 Quebec trip and a discussion about the trip going forward. It was exciting to see so many parents there and from the conversation it's clear that the trip means a lot to the school community.
We want to give a big thank you to Tennyson alum, Rachel, who gave a great presentation and answer lots of questions about her exchange experience. Thank you too to her mum, Karen Davies, who is currently co-chair of the Quebec 2021 team. Karen shared her thoughts on the fundraising for the trip and on hosting an exchange student. Rachel and Karen kindly offered to record their presentation for parents who couldn't make it to the meeting; we'll post it on the website when we get it. In the meantime, here is the Quebec 2021 Parent Presentation which is packed with useful information about the Quebec trip and the Quebec Futures Fund and Quebec Trip Document page which has all you need to know about planning and implementing the exchange.
The key take-aways from the discussion that followed are:
Although no conclusions were drawn, it was good to have a conversation about something that is so important for all our children. Please feel free to post comments here to share you opinion. All voices are welcome.
