Once again, Morrin School is making waves, but this time, it was international. Three Morrin students. Madeline Cuncannon, Taylor Davidson, and Thomas Chapin were rewarded for their hard work participating in the Inclusivity Project with a trip to Germany.
"We put together a school event with our guest speaker being Esra Tualo, and we created sessions for students on how to tackle homophobia in youth. We also paired together with the Drumheller Dragons for a pride tape game to promote inclusivity of LGBTQ+ in sports," explained student Madeline Cuncannon.
Their efforts were chosen by the project and were awarded a free trip to Germany. The three students returned from there trip earlier this month with some great memories.
"We were technically exchange students in a town called Idstein. So, we went there in the morning and sat with the kids and interacted with them. In the afternoons we were able to go places to sightsee and travel and have the whole tourist experience," continued Cuncannon.
Cuncannon expressed she had a new respect for people who immigrate to Canada and do not know the language as all the classes were in German. She was able to participate in the school's English class, and help students learn her language.
"We went to Berlin and Munich, and after we went to Munich, we went to the Dachau Concentration Camp which we study in school. So I learned all about it, and I read all about it but standing there at the gate was the most impactful part of my trip. I just couldn't believe I was there experiencing it," concluded Cuncannon
