SEAs Sailing Education Adventures - 

Samuel W Shaw School will offer a West Coast program for grade 9 students in the coming school year.  The trip combines training and experience in Science, Outdoor Education, Leadership, Social Studies, Math, Language Arts and PE.  The trip’s philosophy matches that of the school – the focus is on learning, human and social values and development of personal skills.  The program offers a unique combination of theoretical and practical learning and development.

Proposed date is September 30th to October 4th 2019

During the trip, students live and work on board the vessels.  They sleep and eat on board, and care for the upkeep of the ship.  Students learn to sail, navigate and communicate on the water.  They are instructed in sea kayaking and have history and ecology lessons.  Activities include shore walks and inter-tidal study as well.

Colouring Club - Grade 5 - 9 students are invited to let go of any worries and relax and colour! All colouring materials will be provided for participants.
