Outdoor Education & Excursions

Junior School students need opportunities to engage in the world outside. Students in Grade 4 and 5 participate in an overnight outdoor education experience.

Our programmes are designed to build community, enrich curricular content and help build interpersonal skills – and they are always a highlight of the year.

Through outdoor education experiences, students learn about watersheds, lakes, biodiversity, ecosystems, sustainability, survival, stewardship, pollution and more. Students are able to be active in their research and are often asked to support their units of inquiry by collecting, analyzing and bringing materials back to the classroom to complete summative tasks.

To complement our outdoor educational programme, students take part in urban day trips to places such as:

  • Humber Arboretum
  • The Kortright Centre
  • Norval
  • Rosehill Reservoir
  • Horseshoe Valley Ski Centre
  • The Toronto Zoo
  • The Ontario Science Centre
  • Downey’s Farm
  • Royal Ontario Museum
  • McMichael Art Gallery
  • Camp George
  • And more!
