From September 23 to October 22 2016, the ten students (seven girls and three boys) from Institut Quatre Cantons enjoyed the first period of the students exchange in Calgary. During a month, they attended lessons at Senator Patrick Burns School with their Grade 9 partners and participated in different activities organized by the host families.

The following presentation was prepared to explain their experience to their Catalan classmates after their trip.

Preparing the trip to Barcelona- March 2017

Trip to Barcelona. March 2017

Thirty Grade 8 students from Senator Patrick Burns School will be visiting Barcelona in March 2017. In their programme, they have scheduled to visit Institut Quatre Cantons for a couple of days.

In order to establish a first contact between the thirty Canadian students and the host group of Catalan students who will accompany them while visiting Institut Quatre Cantons, some previous activities have been taken into account.

On December 11 2016 a skype session was programmed between the students in Calgary and the students in Barcelona. In groups of four, they kept conversations in both, Spanish and English, asking questions previously settled about Christmas traditions in both countries. During an hour (8:15 am in Calgary, 16:15 pm in Barcelona), they could establish a first contact and share some "virtual" time together
