Follow along as a group of 25 teachers from all across Canada tour the battlefields of Northern France for the 12th annual Juno Beach Centre Summer Institute!
Since 2005, the Juno Beach Centre has provided over 350 Canadian educators an exciting professional development opportunity to discover the Canadian First and Second World War historic sites in France. Starting on Sunday July 31, the group will visit Vimy Ridge, Beaumont-Hamel, Dieppe, the Juno Beach Centre, the D-Day landing beaches and various other sites in Normandy. Some highlights of the tour include meeting locals who lived through D-Day and the Battle of Normandy, enjoying the kind hospitality in Normandy, and sharing teaching ideas with colleagues from across Canada.
We will post daily updates from the road, along with testimonials from the teachers as they walk in the footsteps of history.
