West Coast Sailing

A one week experience highlighting Ocean Literacy, Sail Training and Outdoor Skills.  Students fly to the BC Gulf Islands and live aboard for 5 days.  Program offered by SEA Programs Inc.  

Late French Immersion Camp

Every year, Grade 7 Late French Immersion students spend 2 days at a camp to enhance their French skills and get to know their classmates. They play games in French to build up their French to begin the voyage of learning in French.

Quebec

We offer an excursion to Quebec City, Ottawa and Montreal.


River Watch

Grade 8 students participate in the active monitoring and evaluation of the Bow River water quality through a daylong rafting trip on the Bow River. Students will actively engage in lab studies at various locations along the river. They will also have the opportunity to have a guided tour of the Bonnybrook wastewater treatment plant. This trip allows for experiments and studies, which could not normally be completed in a classroom situation.

Off-Site Activities at the CBE

At the CBE, we call “field trips” off-site activities. Off-site activities are learning experiences that occur away from the school site and are organized and supervised by the CBE. All off-site activities must adhere to our Administrative Regulation 3027 – Off-Site Activities. Off-site activities enable students to participate in quality learning experiences that are:
  • Supporting educational outcomes
  • Relevant, flexible, and accessible
  • Connected to the Alberta Programs of Study and learning outcomes, Guide to Education and CBE Results statements

An off-site activity usually originates with the classroom teacher (called the teacher-in-charge) who makes a proposal to his or her principal. Once the activity is approved (based on learning impact and safety), the teacher will provide information to parents regarding the off-site activity including potential risks that are unique to the activity.

Preparing Your Child for an Off-Site Activity

  • Read all of the information sent home with your child from the teacher
  • After reviewing information, if you want your child to participate in the off-site activity sign the Acknowledgment of Risk Form​ and any other documents provided by the teacher
  • A parent meeting is required for all overnight off-site activities, and may be held for other off-site activities
  • Talk to your child about the activity – where they will go, what they will do and what they will be learning about
  • The consent of the parent, guardian, or volunteer must be obtained before the student may participate in an off-site activity

Volunteering for an Off-Site Activity

If you want to volunteer for an off-site activity, you can find more information on the Volunteer page (in the Get Involved section of our website).​​
