Historic Winnipeg Tour
Grade 11 Immersion
française students completed a 8 kilometre tour of Historic Winnipeg in
October, led by Monsieur Sokalski and Stagiaire/Teacher Candidate Daniel
Bilodeau. The tour took students
throught the Exchange District, Old Saint-Boniface, the Forks and ended on the
grounds of the Manitoba Legislature.
In addition to visiting
the sites and scenes made (in)famous during the Winnipeg General Strike of
1919, students took in the vast array of luxurious bank buildings and
expandable warehouses that characterized the boom period Winnipeg experienced
in the 1890s/early 1900s.
Students were invited to
compare and contrast the two monumental statues of "the Father of
Manitoba" Louis Riel; the controversial version by Marcien Lemay now
removed to the Université de Saint-Boniface versus the statesmanlike version
favoured by the Manitoba Métis Federation behind the Legislature.
This year's grade 11's broke all records for
eco-friendly transportation, with over 30 students choosing to make the journey
with their teachers on bicycle!
