WAM May 12-13 York Students
A group of grade 9 students from the York School in Toronto spent last week in St. John’s creating a documentary about Newfoundland culture and how it is shaped by our history … and vice versa.
It’s all a part of the schools ICE program - the Integrated Canadian Experience. The whole idea of ICE is for students to have an authentic experience with the people and the country.
While here, the young people spoke to artists and teachers and politicians and Dave the musician… and to me.
Toby Sparwasser-Siroka, Julie Jenkins, Hannah Kahn, Gillian Kiessling and Ben Feldman are the students. They joined me in the studio along with Sean Mitchell, director of Student Life at York, and began by asking Sean to better describe ICE for us.
