GRADE 8 EXPLORE OVERVIEW

The Grade 8 Explore program is divided into two trips starting with a fall trip and ending with a winter trip.

In September and October students spend a week out of class with the Explore program where on Monday they participate in a local day trip, Tuesday in a planning and preparation day at school and culminate the week with a 3 day/2 night backpacking experience to one of a variety of locations in southwest BC. In February and March students spend a week out of class where on Monday they participate in a day trip ski lesson to Cypress Mountain, Tuesday in a planning and preparation day at school and the remaining part of the week at beautiful Manning Park for a 3 day/2 night cross-country skiing and winter camping experience. Please scroll down for further information on these two trip.

FALL PROGRAM

Due to the COVID-2020 Pandemic, the Fall program did not take place.  An ExL (Experiential Learning) program was developed to promote Mental and Physical well-being through the outdoors. 

An example of the dates for the Grade 8 Explore’s 2019-20 Fall program which took place over three weeks in September and October 2019 are:

Group A September 16-20
Group B September 23-27
Group C September 30-October 4

The information package and action items will be sent to parents in June 2020 for the 2020-21 school year program. We look forward to seeing you at the Parent Meeting in September 2020.
