|ROYAL WEST ACADEMY TO HOST GERMAN STUDENTS AT THE COSMODOME|
MONTREAL, SEPTEMBER 24, 2001— Students from Royal West Academy of the English Montreal School Board (EMSB) will treat their counterparts from Berlin, Germany, to a day at the Cosmodome in Laval on Friday, September 28 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. EMS Technologies, formerly Spar Aerospace, is sponsoring the event.
Every two years Royal West participates in exchange programs. Previous activities have taken place with schools in Poland, Russia and France. The 24 German high school pupils, in-turn, will host the Grade 10 Royal West delegation next summer.
During their stay here, which began September 18, the German students have visited many points of interest in Montreal, Quebec City, and Ottawa.
Harold Knowles, a parent of a Royal West student and an employee of EMS Technologies, says he wishes to encourage other companies to come forward with sponsorship of these kinds of events.
Sydney Westlake, Nick Simms, and Doug Floen are Royal West teachers who organize this event and will chaperone the students to Berlin next summer.
