Pen Pals

In 2006 three French Immersion classes at Dewson Street Junior School in Toronto began writing to the children of 3 schools in Liboré, and the program has grown steadily since then. French immersion primary schools and French classes in non-immersion schools and secondary schools are exchanging letters, artwork, banners and cards throughout the school year. Much has been learned and shared between children in both countries!

Inspirational Story

One day when I was with the Mayor of Liboré, we noticed a donkey pulling a wooden cart with a woman lying down on it.
