Field Trips

​Throughout the school year it is not uncommon for teachers to organize field trips with their classes. While field trips are not a compulsory element of a given program, they can serve to enhance the regular curriculum taught in the classroom.

The number and nature of field trips a teacher might organize in a year varies considerably depending on the opportunities available, the timing of these opportunities, the cost involved, transportation required etc.


On the topic of transportation, please note the information below:


New booster seat legislation took effect July 1, 2008 (amendment to Division 36 of the Motor Vehicle Act Regulations, Child Seating and Restraint Systems). This legislation is relevant to the K to 12 school system when considering children riding with a teacher or parent volunteer drivers.

All drivers are responsible for complying with all child restraint requirements

Booster seats are for children:

    • Who are over 18 Kg (40 lb.)
    • Until they are 9 years of age
    • Unless they have reached the height of 145cm (4'9") tall
