Field Trips

Trips are made to places of interest throughout the school year.  This could entail a walking trip in the neighbourhood or an excursion requiring transportation. A notice will be sent home in advance of each excursion, informing you of the date, time and destination.  It will also include a permission form to be signed and returned.

At Ridley Orchard School we feel buses are an unsafe way for young children to travel during these excursions; buses do not supply car seats or even a safe seatbelt. We ask that parents participate at least once during the year in driving and accompanying their child and two other children on a trip in a safe vehicle with properly installed car and/or booster seats.  This is an important and safe way for children to share the school experience.
