Class Trips

Class Trips: Often teachers like to enhance what is being learned in the classroom with class trips for their students. Class trips are not required, but provide program enrichment opportunities and a wide range of experiences for our students.  Nowadays, school bus charters and entrance fees to facilities can be quite expensive. These trips cannot be possible without parents willing to volunteer their time to help supervise students. Parents wishing to do so much have successfully completed the Child Abuse Register search and a Criminal Records check. Parent chaperones are expected to give their full attention to the supervision of students, under the direction of teachers. That is the first priority; ensuring the safety and well-being of our students. If adequate supervision cannot be provided due to a lack of parents volunteering to chaperone, then, unfortunately, class trips will be cancelled. We need your support to ensure this does not happen.
