Orientation Day-Trip of Vancouver and Richmond 

*Open to new international students only

Each year, we organize a field trip for new international students to see some of what Vancouver and Richmond have to offer.  The field trip will include a BBQ lunch, a tour of Stanley Park and a visit to Fly Over Canada! 

This trip is open to new international students from ages 13 to 18.  Students under 13 are welcome to join the trip if space permits.  These students must be accompanied by an adult who is required to pay for their seat ($29).  Students under 13 will be notified prior to departure if space is not available.  Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate parents of students in secondary school.
