Baradene College students - Lauren White and Keeara Ofren - went to Wellington to speak at a function at the National Library hosted by the French Embassy. They took down fifteen posters and some copies of the book 'The Battle of Conscience'. They represented to project very well. A video link to our partner school in Chauny was an extra special part of the event.
