The school at the top of a Canadian ski mountain

“Parents living in a Canadian resort town have created their own independent school on top of a ski mountain after the nearest school to their town closed.

Families in Sun Peaks, British Columbia, were told their children would have to commute two hours a day to reach another school.

Since last September, 19 children aged from five to 10 have made their way up the mountain in Sun Peaks to get to their one-room school house.

Each morning, they take the ski lift to the Discovery Centre school and ski back down home when the day is done.”

The BBC’s Brandy Yanchyk joined pupil 9-year-old Juliet McGauchie for a taste of her regular school day.
