French students from CHS took a trip to Montreal, Canada April 6th through 8th. They left Chatham bright and early Friday morning and arrived in the fourth largest French speaking city in the world with plenty of time to tour St. Patrick’s Basilica, do a little shopping at the Eaton Centre underground mall, and visit the Pointe à Caillière Museum of Archeology. Over the weekend, they visited Montréal’s famous Notre Dame Basilica, walked up to the Mont Royal overlook, took in the Montréal Science Museum, and visited the Olympic Stadium and Observation Tower. They also had plenty of time to explore and enjoy the charm of Montréal’s old town, and of course, hear French being spoken and speak it themselves. “It was the first time any of them had been to Montreal before,” said French teacher Jake Luttinger. “They saw a whole city full of people who prove being bilingual isn’t some rare skill, but very common in countries besides our own.” Mr. Luttinger and English teacher Tonya Russel chaperoned the trip.
