With special thanks to funders the Niitsitapi Learning Centre has numerous valuable learning field trips throughout the school year. Please ensure the consent form for every trip is completed, we cannot permit students to participate without it, phoning home for verbal consent is not permitted.
Walking Field Trips
Class trips that are within walking distance of the school, e.g. to a local park, will no longer require parents to fill out a consent form. Instead, schools will send a letter outlining local sites and their potential risks. Teachers will provide guardians 48 hours notice of the trip to plan appropriately and off-site activity supervision ratios will be met.
Children who require car seats or booster seats for regular transportation must be in a car seat or booster seat for field trips.
Preparing your Child for an Off-site Activity
- Arrive to school on time, as departure times have limited flexibility.
- Dress appropriately, including running shoes and comfortable clothing appropriate for the activity.
- Bring a water bottle or additional healthy snack if you prefer. The school will provide snacks and lunch for the students on the trip.
