Off-site Activities at Eric Harvie School
These trips are intended to enhance and support student learning across the disciplines. It is the school’s intention to cover usual field trip costs through the costs of the cultural fee. However, there are occasionally unique field trip opportunities that come up throughout a school year that are not ordinarily anticipated. In these cases, the extraordinary fee will need to be requested from the parents. Any extraordinary requests will, of course, be fully described to the parents.
It is the school’s policy that no child will be denied access to field trip experiences for financial reasons. Funds to support these students will need to be requested from the School Council as needed.
Swimming lessons will be held each year to promote swimming safety and healthy activity. This year they are being offered by the City of Calgary through Shouldice Pool. The fees to cover swimming are assessed outside the scope of the Cultural Fee. Again, no child will be refused participation based on financial need.
