Students in the High School Division are provided with opportunities to participate in extended excursions. These include supervised trips to Canadian and international destinations. In recent years students in various grades have traveled to Japan, India, Galapagos Islands, and more. These trips combine recreational activities and unique opportunities to learn more about the world around us.
For the past several years, groups of dedicated students and teachers have gone on trips to less-fortunate areas of the world. The trips allow students not only to take educational side trips and to sight-see, but half of the trip is spent working and living in a local community:
Kenya, India: Free The Children
Ecuador: Adopt-A-Village project
Zambia, Nepal, Iqaluit: Building homes and schools
Cambodia: Delivering much-needed funds for landmine relief
Every two years or so, the music programme combines forces with one of our school sports teams to take a tour. In the past several years, trips have included Spain (soccer), (New Zealand (rugby), Ireland (rugby), and Cuba (volleyball/wrestling) – to name a few.
Our HS art department and an excited group of high school visual arts students have been fortunate enough to jet off to Europe to study the early masters of art, architecture and sculpture. Paris, Rome, Greece, and Venice have been the most recent destinations.
In the past several years, students have trekked through Belgium, France, Germany, and Iceland as they visit historical sites on the school’s Battlefields of Europe trip.
In March 2018, a group traveled to the Galapagos Islands to gain up-close experience with the region's unique wildlife.
High School students have had the opportunity to travel to Japan and to China on separate trips – visiting important centres of international business, as well as seeing the historical and cultural sights of these two countries!
