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.
BBC News joined pupil 9-year-old Juliet McGauchie for a taste of her regular schoolday.
