Students in the grade 2 class at Aspen Grove school have been taking part in the Classroom champions program, which sees Olympians teach lessons regarding sport and Olympic culture via video conferencing. Program spokesperson Lisa Dorman says two time Canadian olympic cross country skier Brittany Webster has been working monthly with the students, even while in the midst of her training for the Sochi games.
“Brittany has been delivering monthly videos to the students, to her classroom up in Grande Prairie. And she has also done a couple of live chats with them using some of the technology that Classroom Champions provides to the classroom as well.”
Tomorrow will see Webster meet the students in person for the first time, as she pays a special visit to the school to get a close up look at the work they have been doing as part of the Classroom Champions program.
