The participation of the Saint-Laurent schools is made possible thanks to a partnership with the Marguerite-Bourgeoys School Board.
In all, 9 classes from 3 elementary schools (Laurentides, Trésor-du-Boisé and Henri-Beaulieu) and 2 high school classes are associated with the project.
Students in grades 5 and 6 are the only actors in the 7 chapters. In class, they prepared by making their costumes, addressing the themes they participated in (including a workshop on Aboriginal realities for Henri-Beaulieu School), and sometimes rehearsing their roles before the shootings.
The students at Saint-Laurent high school prepared accessories during their art classes. They were able to tackle themes of history and also art history (they notably reproduced costumes inspired by those of the artist Alfred Pellan).
