I could not believe when I told the story of Terry Fox to my students that his fight with cancer ended in 1980. It truly was a moment of "Where have the years gone?" How amazing was this young man who inspired a nation and believed that his fight against the disease that took his leg, could be won? The children were in awe!
Each wore a little tag to remind them that their run was important.
Thank you to the families who donated to this worthy cause.
With the switching of days for this field trip we were truly blessed with the perfect Autumn day, almost clear skies, no wind or rain and temperatures that were crisp but bearable!
It was a lovely day for a train ride.
Thanks to the parents who came along and kept us all safe in our little groups.
The children loved the corn maze! When they look at the photos maybe they will realize just how high the corn actually grows!
The best part of the day may have been seeing the students out here in a rural setting, which some of them may not often get to experience. They were happy just to be out in the fresh air!
Here's a couple trying to get out of the giant rope maze.
There were a couple of minutes to play on the various play structures.
We heard the story of the Little Red Hen told by some friendly puppets as we sat and enjoyed our cookies.
We got up close and personal with some goats, sheep, chickens and rabbits.
In small groups, the children got to make scarecrows of various kinds.
Looking for gems in the mine was an absolute favourite!
All in all, this trip was worth it's weight in gold!
