Class Trips

Every year classes venture out on a variety of trips where they leave the school property for the purpose of expanding on the curriculum taught at the school.

These trips enhance classroom learning by providing students with opportunities to experience curriculum content in a meaningful context. The trip may include, but are not limited to, visits to places such as farms, museums, theatres, the Gibson House Museum, the Toronto ZooToronto Symphony Orchestra performances, MissionFest, the Ontario Science Centre, and the Royal Winter Fair.


In addition to other class trips, students in grades 6, 7, and 8 attend three-day trips each year.

In Grade 6 the students go in February to Fair Glen (Beaverton, ON) to participate in many winter activities such as skiing, snowshoeing, and rope climbing.

In Grade 7 the students go to Fair Glen in June to learn and practice canoeing before setting off on a one and a half day canoe trip. During that canoe trip they sleep in tents at a campground they have canoed to.

In Grade 8 the students spend their last few days together as a class in Ottawa. Enroute they stop in Kingston to visit Fort Henry before enjoying three days checking out the sights in and around Ottawa. Much of their trip and visits to a large number of attractions tie in with the history curriculum they were taught in Grade 8.
