Our New Penpals in Northern Canada – 2023

This year we have started a penpal exchange with two schools in Northern Canada.

Diamond Jenness High School is in Hay River NWT on the shore of Great Slave Lake. An alumni French teacher, Anthony Doiron has taught at this school for the past two years.

Bishop Belleau Elementary is the school that Julie Langlois taught at before she came to IPS. It is located in Moosonee, Ontario on the shore of Hudson Bay.

See this interview with Jennifer Henrichsen to learn more about how our penpal program started many years ago at Island Pacific School.

Stay tuned for more updates about our penpals in the North!
