Visitors from Nunavut Arctic College

The Staff and Guides of the Juno Beach Centre witnessed many emotional moments during the 70th Anniversary of VE Day celebrations.

We were especially honoured to host a group of students from Nunavut Arctic College, along with members of Royal Canadian Legion branch #168 in Iqaluit, Nunavut. Here they are pictured next to Peter Irniq’s Inukshuk, where the Juno Beach Centre exchanged flags with the delegation. Two students, motivated by the ceremony, spontaneously broke out in traditional Inuit throat singing.

Thank you to this incredible group of young people for having visited the JBC from so far away!
