Grade 8 Trip 2019-2020 Survey (survey closes Sept 26)

Posted September 19, 2019

Dear Parents and Students,

Every year our teachers consider volunteering to organize and supervise a special Grade 8 trip. There are many factors that help us to assess whether a trip is feasible from year to year. At RCPS, extended day/overnight grade 8 trips have occurred consecutively for at least the past 20 years. It is important to note that since overnight trips are organized and supervised on a teacher volunteer basis from year to year there is always the possibility that unforeseen circumstances could prevent a trip from occurring. However, we as a staff are always hopeful that the circumstances will allow for a trip to take place each year. To that end, we’d like to get your input about possibly changing up the traditional Ottawa Grade 8 trip to match the needs and wants of our current cohorts. Please look over the comparison chart below carefully. After your review please indicate which option you prefer. **(Survey closes Sept 26 at midnight)

We have four options:
A) Camp Muskoka/Stratford/Canada’s Wonderland (
B) Ottawa Trip
C) 3 Extended Day Trips (Stratford/Canada’s Wonderland/TBD)
D) Student and parents who do not want to participate in a special trip

There is also a section for you to give a reasonable suggestion.

We value your input!
