Fourteen Kugluktuk High School students packed their bags and flew to Chelsea, Que., February 28 to March 7. The students went indoor rock-climbing and bowling, visited a maple syrup farm, toured Parliament Hill, went downhill skiing, visited the National Museum of History and went on a scavenger hunt in downtown Ottawa.

Students from Chelsea, Que., will come to Kugluktuk on April 16 to partake in the Nattiq Frolics spring festival to conclude the exchange trip.

Time to sample the sweet taste of Quebec maple syrup, tapped directly from the trees on the farm. From left, Tara Wiebe, Devin Brennan serving up the delicacy, Cassidy Atatahak, Lauren Anavilok and Leah Paukstaitis. Photos courtesy of Danielle Scarlett/Kugluktuk High School

 

Friends Lauren Anavilok, Leah Paukstaitis and Cassidy Atatahak find a fence makes a suitable place to take a break.

 

Mathilda Merrell and Mackenzie Demerah embrace as snow flurries flutter to the ground.

 

Scared of heights? It doesn’t intimidate Cassidy Atatahak, who she strides from one pole to another in an indoor climbing gym.
