Les Explorateurs are a group of enthusiastic young women who are interested in traveling and learning about different cultures and languages around the world. In our inaugural year, we looked primarily at the history of Quebec and fundraised in preparation for our March trip to Quebec City, where the students enjoyed their experience. This year, meeting bi-weekly, our members will expand their knowledge about cultural traditions/ holidays. We will compare holiday celebrations, learn some key vocabulary and share some food along the way. Avec nous, c’est toujours un voyage de plaisir, à notre goût!
