Some students and staff from the EMSB had the opportunity to meet the Earl of Wessex (Prince Edward), the third son and youngest child of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip (the Duke of Edinburgh) recently at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel. Among the 10 schools represented at this event for the charitable organization Free the Children, two were from the EMSB: FACE downtown and Royal West Academy in Montreal West. Pictured above, the Earl meets with Royal West grad Rachel Prud'homme, Grade 11 student Anna Rotman and EMSB Communications and Marketing Specialist Michael J. Cohen. In the other photo, the children in the white shirts are from FACE School.
