Field Trips within Walking Distance

The CBE values the educational benefit of field trips. Field trips close to our school can complement classroom learning by giving students opportunities to explore the community around their school.  

Please be advised the process for trips within walking distance of the school has been simplified, excluding restricted activities, e.g. swimming. As parents/guardians, you will no longer need to fill out a consent form for your child to go on a class trip that is walking distance from the school, e.g. to a local park.  Appropriate walking distance is determined by the Principal and may vary, depending on the age of the students. 

Teachers will provide at least 48 hours’ notice when planning a trip to a local site. You will be notified about these trips by email or letter.  (please see the full letter on the right side of the screen)
