Biology Field Trip

Major Biology Field Trip - Info Evening
Posted on 01/10/2024

Sir Wilfrid Laurier SS Science department is hosting an "Information Evening" for parents of potential Grade 11 Biology students in the 2024-2025 academic year.

We are arranging a field trip for 42 Biology students to the Huntsman Marine Science Centre in St. Andrews New Brunswick the week of September 23rd, 2024.  The estimated cost of the trip is $1500 per student.  This would include transportation, accommodation on site, a week of laboratory and field lab activities like a "whale and wildlife tour", and meals while on campus.

The trip is tailored to the Grade 11 Biology curriculum and this is why potential Grade 11 Biology students will have priority over Grade 12.  However, a waiting list of interested Grade 12 students will also be set-up in the event we do not reach our target of 42 Grade 11 Biology students.

More information about our trip and your questions will be answered on Thursday January 18th, 2024 at 6 PM in the Sir Wilfrid Laurier SS LIBRARY.

Please RSVP if you are planning to attend the meeting to Mustapha Rajab, Department Head for Science/French at [email protected]

Thank you.
