Once again we got lucky with weather! We had a great time on our two night trip up to Post Creek. Students all did a great job of setting up, cooking their food, maintaining camp. Although we did not complete the day hike all the way to Flora, students experienced how to hike in more challenging terrain. I'm sure some pictures will be posted by Mr. Shea soon. Special kudos to Mrs. VanSanten for coming along as our female chaperone.
We now will turn our focus to winter sports. We have two ski trips to Whistler planned for December. Students will come home with information on this shortly. We will be getting into some cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and winter camping in the new year. Thank you for all of your support in a very successful first term of the OEA.
We also wanted to tell you about the new Mt. Waddington's Outdoors store on Vedder Road. Our students are eligible for 15% off of any purchase because they are in this program. The store has our class list so be sure to mention your student's name at the till if you are thinking of purchasing any outdoor clothes or gear for Christmas. Please see their website below.
