Fourteen Guelph Collegiate students travelled from April 4 to 12 on a federal exchange program to Pangnirtung, on the east coast of Baffin Island. They’re looking forward to the May 2 arrival of their Pangnirtung hosts for a return visit to Guelph. Here, from left, GCVI students Jordyn Farquharson, Alex Cluff, Erica Stone and Emma Swain are garbed in caribou and sealskin parkas supplied by the Inuit of Pangnirtung to help them stay warm during their visit. The Guelph students feasted on traditional tea, bannock, caribou and char, a news release said. They also went ice fishing, visited Auyuittuq National Park and participated in traditional Inuit activities during their stay.
