This information may be shared as necessary with adults supervising the excursion.  Specific curriculum expectations related to the field trip will be addressed by individual course teachers.

Attendance and participation at this event should be treated like an exam – this excursion and their facilitation of the activity will be worth 10% of their final mark.
