Recently a group of 35 students from QJS and CSS and 14 adults from Quesnel enjoyed an educational tour through Greece and Italy.  Highlights included visits to the Acropolis in Athens, Mount Etna in Sicily, the Coliseum in Rome, the statue of David in Florence and the Grand Canal in Venice.  The group also visited two World War Two cemeteries, one in Agira, Sicily and the other in Assassi.  In Assissi, Rick Ezowski and Cory Hart, below, laid a City of Quesnel pin at the grave of Robert Low Foreman, a Quesnel man who died in action there in April, 1945. The group would like to thank everyone who bought flowers, pies or raffle tickets which helped with the fundraising efforts.
