Delay in return of Quebec trip

Attention Parents of students on the Quebec Trip:

We had some minor mechanical issues with the bus just outside of Montreal.  Safety is always the top priority so we pulled into a mall. A new bus was sent but we are delayed in our return.

We are on our way now

We likely will be home closer to 10 pm. We will keep you informed closer to the time.

Quebec City – Day 4

Our final day of our trip!

We have left Quebec City already and are heading to Montreal to see Biodome.

Yesterday, the students had a fabulous day touring the Quebec Aquarium, visiting St. Anne Basilica, an outdoor bread oven and Montmerency Falls, where we crossed above the falls on a suspension bridge. The falls are 91 metres high, compared to Niagara Falls which is only 50…

We have some tired children for you when we return. We are expected back by 7:30 pm. If we are earlier or later, we will post again. Otherwise, see you at 7:30 pm.

Quebec City Trip – Day 3

Bonjour from Quebec City!

The students are having a great time.  Yesterday, we WALKED!  (They used to think DPA was a lot of walking). We walked from 9:30 am to 5pm seeing both lower and upper town, the only fortified city north of Mexico. Rich in history, the students learned amazing facts about this 400 year old city. We also visited the armory, the fort, and the Governor Generals official residency.

Today we are heading to the Quebec Aquarium and then to the Beaupre Coast.



Quebec City Trip Update

We have arrived safely in Quebec City. We are having a traditional French Canadian dinner at The Sugar Shack on Ile D’Orlean.

We will update parents on our trip throughout the week on our blog.

Dress in Pink – April 12

April 12, 2017 marks the International Day of Pink. It is a day where communities across the country, and across the world, can unite in celebrating diversity and raising awareness to stop homophobia, transphobia, transmisogyny, and all forms of bullying.

The International Day of Pink was started in Nova Scotia when 2 straight high school students saw a gay student wearing a pink shirt being bullied. The 2 students intervened, but wanted to do more to prevent homophobic & transphobic bullying. They decided to purchase pink shirts, and a few days later got everyone at school to arrive wearing pink, standing in solidarity. The result was that an entire school took a stand and began working together to prevent homophobic & transphobic bullying.

The message was clear: anyone can bully, any can be victimized by bullying, but together we can stop it.

Each year on the second Wednesday of April, millions of people wear pink and take a stand. The Day of Pink is a symbol, a spark, that empowers and inspires youth across Canada to create amazing social change!


We encourage students and staff to wear PINK on April 12th to show your support.
