Barriere Secondary Counsellor
For the week of April 22-26 Barriere Secondary was lucky enough to be able to host 19 young women from Indonesia. In partnership with TRU World and School District 73, our school had the opportunity to pair some of our students with visiting international students.
As part of a cultural exchange, our students were able to show our guests how our education system works on a daily basis and give them a glimpse into our lives.
In exchange, our guests from Indonesia were gracious enough to come into several classrooms and share their stories and perspectives on life in another country and culture. It is our hope that all parties involved gained some insight, respect, and understanding into the life and cultures that exist beyond our own borders.
