Week 35 & 36: Upcoming Field Trip - Thursday, June 7
A permission slip will be coming home this week for an end-of-year trip for Grades 4 & 5 students to the Ottawa Athletic Club on Lancaster Road. We have done this trip in previous years, and the students have really enjoyed it! The OAC has staff to facilitate various sport centres for the children to try, and this year we are including a swimming period as well. In previous years, they have done such varied sports as tennis, golf, basketball, squash, racquetball, circuit training, and karate, all under the supervision of trained staff. They also have Certified Lifeguards at the pool. We will be leaving St. Clare at 9:20 a.m. and return by 3 p.m. on Thursday, June 7. The permission slip will include a list of items to bring. There will be no cost for this trip due to the amazing generosity of our wonderful parent council, who are paying for the admission to the OAC and part of the bussing. The remainder of the bussing fees will be paid from the activity fees paid at the beginning of the year. Thank you, Parent Council!
