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).​​

Field Trips | On-Site & Off-Site Activities at Rosemont School

We value in-school guest presentations and off-site activities for children in all grades. The use of on- and off-site activities are effective because they engage our students in meaningful experiences and support multi-disciplinary work. Every activity planned must meet the standards of CBE’s rigorous on- and off-site guidelines. Principals and teachers are diligent about completing the appropriate forms, which include parental permission. Once the trip or activity has been approved, we send home forms that will give you information about the event and require your signature. When your child is preparing to go on a field trip, you may receive two or three forms. We appreciate your cooperation in completing these forms and returning them promptly to the school. All activities are considered an essential part of the school’s curriculum. No child will be denied the opportunity to participate in classroom activities and field trips based on an inability to pay activity costs.
