We recognize that learning outside of the classroom in the context of real life experience is a valuable tool in a child’s education. Every year, our teachers plan various trips to provide ways to supplement and enhance curriculum.
Some trips involve local events that emphasize the role Brantford has in the Canadian economy, such as Bite of Brant, and others provide cultural exposure such as the Brantford Symphony Orchestra. Expenses for these trips are covered by a student fee paid at the beginning of each year.
Major class trips take place in the grades 7 & 8 and involve overnight stays. Our grade 7 class participates in an outdoor camp and our grade 8 class explores Ottawa for 3 days. Expenses for these trips are covered by fundraising efforts and sometimes additional payment is required. Volunteers are needed on these occasions and their assistance contributes to good memories and lasting friendships.
