Our students have some pretty exciting field trips and workshops in the works. Home and School is proud that our fundraising initiatives can help subsidize the cost of of these programs for students and parents. Here are some of the exciting trips & workshops
Grades 4s & 5s Attended the Toronto Symphony Orchestra
Kindies are going to the Young People’s Theatre
One of the best ways for children to feel cherished and loved is to cozy up with a classic story! The Great Green Room appears before your eyes in this delightful family musical that stays true to the beloved book. Children and families can enjoy the surprise and joy of Bunny’s imaginative detours on the way to dreamland.
In this intimate production, everyone will revel with Bunny in the fun of jumping cows, dancing bears, the Cat and the Fiddle, and a room where every corner springs to animated life! Goodnight Moon is a truly timeless theatre experience for everyone to enjoy.
Grade 3’s are having an in-class Art Workshop led by the McMichael Gallery
The McMichael’s highly interactive programs are designed to advance students’ visual literacy, nurture higher-order thinking and communication skills, boost creativity, and get students excited!
