Grafton Public School students video conference with Iqaluit
Grade 7 students at Grafton Public School took part in a Connect North video conferencing project Wednesday morning with fellows student and officials from Iqaluit, Toronto and Ottawa. It included a traditional lighting ceremony with Inuit Elders. The connection was made possible by the non-profit organization CISCO and Vroc which has allowed education opportunities like this to piggy back on the scientific research connection that has been established.
Local students who asked questions about the ceremony (facing the camera L to R) are Emerson Kelly, Harley Everden and Gracie Matser. (Back L to R) Librarian and teacher Sherrie Greig and grade 7 teacher Laurie Kerr.
