I am pleased to announce that our class – the Home Learners – has been selected to attend a special Dr. Jane Goodall event on October 20th being hosted by Science World and the Jane Goodall Institute. This opportunity is being offered to only a select group of Metro Vancouver students and teachers. We are truly fortunate to have been selected to attend and meet Dr. Goodall.
If you would like your child to participate, please ensure you complete and sign a field trip form – in your folder – and place in Shannon’s folder prior to October 20th. Only students who have submitted their field trip forms by October 19th will be able to attend.
The event will take place at Science World in Vancouver. Transportation to and from Science World is on your own. Please arrive before our 9:15 check-in. Our group will convene outside the front entrance. This event is for registered students only. Sorry, no parents or siblings. Below is the itinerary for the morning:
9:15 Arrive at TELUS World of Science, check-in
9:30 OmniMAX Theatre
