This Friday, Heritage Park Secondary School students will be welcoming 25 students from Bluefield High School in Charlottetown, PEI, as part of an exchange program sponsored by the Society for Educational Visits and Exchanges in Canada (SEVEC) and Canadian Heritage.

The PEI students will stay with students and their families for one week during spring break and then 25 B.C. students will visit PEI for one week in May.
