With stained-glass making integrated into the Grade 9 art class, a micro-business was also set up to create small pieces to promote French culture and the maple sugar industry during the World Acadian Congress, an international event that took place in the area in 2014.
Extracurricular activities include a senior choir and dances, as well as a theatre troupe and improvisation team that perform at the provincial level.
The schools are located in various communities in New Brunswick, ranging from small towns to larger cities. Some are in French regions, and some are in more bilingual regions. New Brunswick is the only officially-bilingual province in Canada. It has beautiful coastline, as well as the Appalachian Mountain Range.
