The Grade 5/6 class went on their annual class field trip on April 11.

This year the itinerary included a quick stop at the Reynolds Alberta Museum (RAM) before heading on to visit the Alberta Legislature Building in Edmonton.

Prior to the trip, the students learned the story of the Mad Trapper in class in preparation for their program at the Reynolds Alberta Museum which was based on the famous Mad Trapper story.

The group spent most of their time at the RAM in the Aviation Building completing a scavenger hunt that included history and facts from all sorts of important Canadian aviation pilots and events.

After a quick tour through the main building where students got to see all sorts of historic automobiles and artifacts, the group loaded back on the bus for the trek to Edmonton.

Their program at the Alberta Legislature started with the class participating in mock legislative activities where they got to follow a script and dress up as MLAs and all the other important participants from our provincial government.

After debating a fake bill about the government subsidizing college tuition, the students got to tour through the Legislature Building and their tour guide explained all about the architecture and history of the building.
