The Christmas Wind Quiz - Question #9

Click here to listen to the answer buttonThe correct answer is: 6,741 km

The two schools that have the greatest distance between them are Hyland Elementary in Surrey, B.C. and Amos Comenius in Hopedale, NL. The shortest distance between them is 6,741 km, and if you could drive between them (which you can’t because, for the most part, there are no roads in Labrador) it would take about 100 hours.

Northern Lights Academy in Rigolet, NL is actually the most eastern school participating, but it would take a bit less time to get there because of the way you’d have to travel there.
