Who is MWCN?
The McGill Bursary
International Women’s Day, March 2020
Special Inter-generational Project
MWCN was proud to work with students of the New Frontiers School Board Schools (St. Willibrord in Chateauguay, and Chateauguay Valley Regional High School in Ormstown), and local seniors. The students interviewed the seniors, then converted the interviews into short vingnettes. The final product – the wonderful books below.
