Geordie School Tour 2013-2014: Day 30 & 31

Day 30 – Magdalen Islands 

 

As I write this I am sitting on the five hour ferry that takes us from the Magdalen Islands back to PEI where we will then drive to Quebec City. This leg of the tour has been so beautiful; and we have been fortunate to have some free time to wonder around and take in the sights.  The edges of the island are the best; they are either long sandy beaches or high cliffs made of red red sand stone that drop off into the rocking water. You wouldn’t think we were in Quebec.

Rainbow we saw as we were loading up the van in the Islands. We had to stop packing the truck, it was just so beautiful! 

 

 

Day 31 – Quebec City 

 

Two shows of Derwent in a row. Inside out underwear, sticking chalk up your nose, thinking your going to barf… These are all things Derwent talks about that get ginormous reactions from the students. And the word stupid. Lots of kids laugh at it because they know it is a bad word and others are scandalized that it is said, whispering “that’s a bad word” at Derek. The teachers also love Mr. Burnside! They laugh and laugh. Although the show is bringing a serious topic to the schools there is also a lot of joy. Haha… Inside out underwear!
