School programs at the Rundle’s Mission Historic Site teach students about the meeting of cultures.

During the mid 1800s, people from different cultures met at the shores of Pigeon Lake. Today, new curriculum-based school programs teach students about the stories associated with this particular place and region, how the people here coped with and affected change and how this history is related to life in the region today.
