Radio has become an essential part of the elementary school experience at many schools in the Quebec City region. Since 2009, students have been learning how to communicate their ideas using radio. It's called Première Radio, and as of this week, anyone can listen in to their reports online. Julia Caron stopped by Anne Hébert Elementary School to find out more about how this project got started. We hear from Claude Thibodeau, teacher Kathleen Vatcher, and student Annalisa Abbate. (Pictured left are students Annalisa Abbate, Hubert Chassé, Charlie Lauzon-Pelletier, Océane Caron with their teacher Julie Vallière.)

That cage had been lost for over 150 years. Now it's returned to Quebec, and to Lévis, where it is briefly on display to the public. Julia Caron was there, and brings us more.
