Students in SD83 will be heading on outdoor field trips thanks in part to GO grants from the Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation.
GO Grants provide field trip grants for British Columbia K-12 classes and schools to help get students outdoors to learn about B.C.’s fish, wildlife, habitats and biodiversity. The GO Grants cover transportation, project materials and or program fees to support student learning and connecting in nature.
Receiving grants for either the entire school or individual classes to go to Tsútswecw Provincial Park for the Adam’s River sockeye run were Falkland ($1,600), South Canoe Elementary ($600), Grindrod Elementary ($580), Eagle River Secondary ($3,500 – which will also cover the cost of a Grade 7/8 trip to Kingfisher), South Broadview Elementary ($1,200), and Hillcrest ($2,560). North Canoe received $534 for outdoor walking tours.
