The decision on two international field trips was postponed by the Board as there was a mix up and the appropriate paperwork didn’t make it into the board agenda package.
At the meeting organizing teacher April (Friessen) Dam presented info about the first trip, which was a request for a cultural trip for students taking French in grades 9-11 will include sight seeing and touring.
The second request was by Pleasant Valley Secondary School teacher Paul Britton for a trip to Italy & Greece in March 2020. This trip, which is open to any grade 9-12 student in SD83, will include visiting historical sites in Italy and Greece and wrap up with a three day cruise of the Greek Islands.
Decisions on these trips will be made at the February meeting, to be held at PVSS, after the board has an opportunity to look at the itineraries and safety plans.
