Thanks to collaboration with Rockridge Secondary School in Ashbury, Virginia three students from Walkerville Centre for the Creative Arts were among the guests in the White House Rose Garden Thursday morning for the official welcome to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on his state visit to the United States.

Tamara Vujic, Jeremy Burke and Natalie Culmore are part of a senior drama class that has been working with their peers from Virginia, primarily using Skype technology.

The Rockridge students recently won an important, state-wide drama festival and were to be received at the White House, in recognition of their achievement. The school’s relationship with the students from Walkerville came to the attention of US government officials, who extended the invitation to attend today’s event in the U.S. capital.

The students were accompanied by Walkerville Collegiate Institute Principal David Garlick and GECDSB Director of Education Erin Kelly.
