More than 20 retired teachers from French language schools in Winnipeg and rural Manitoba returned to the classroom today – this time as students in St. Boniface Hospital Research’s Youth BIOlab Jeunesse program.
The group, who have been getting together for some 20-25 years, are associated with the Manitoba Teachers Association, and get together for tours and events several times a year.
Mr. Raymond Bisson, retired teacher and coordinator of the tour, says “This has been a wonderful, wonderful experience. None of us have had the opportunity to visit the lab before. It is such an enrichment for the students and the content, given today in French, was quite impressive. The attitude that you have here is authentic and passionate. The science was presented in a fun way, and was very hands-on”.
