Queen Elizabeth High School student's win Tranche de Vie
The Montreal charity organization Blue Metropolis recently launched a friendly competition to give English-speaking high school students the opportunity to build relationships with the French culture around them. Students were challenged to shoot and edit a short documentary, featuring a character from their community.
Queen Elizabeth High school students from Sept-Iles told the story of Samuel Cormier-Farley. He is of Mexican origin and grew-up on the North Shore. His passion for music and singing inspired the students. When the dust settled, and the public had their say, Queen Elizabeth High won with 43% of the votes.
Allison Van Rassel met the Queen Elizabeth students the day after their big win. She started the conversation with Michela Cox, one of their teachers and asked her to describe their project.
