The time has come…

Students and families,

It’s back, our overnight trip for intermediate students. At Treeline, this is our 8th Intermediate Overnight Trip and the 3rd time that we have visited Ottawa.  The opportunity to travel to the Capital of our country provides students a chance to explore some of the countries greatest buildings and museums in an environment outside the walls of our classrooms.  Our school will be travelling with Brightspark a leader in educational tours in Canada.

On the trip this year students will explore,

Parliament Hill Centre Block  on a guided tour – the Parliament Buildings are historical monuments, architectural treasures, and an important national symbol cherished by all Canadians
The Museum of Civilization, a building itself which is an architectural masterpiece and one of the largest museums in the world, and its exceptional exhibits present 100,000 years of Canadian prehistory, history and culture for your students to explore.

Museum of Nature

The Canadian Museum of Nature is a part of Ottawa that is not to be missed.  The museum’s signature galleries and special exhibitions draw visitors from around the world. Fossils and dinosaursmammalsbirdswaterEarth—there’s something here for everyone. It’s worth a visit for the architecture alone! The museum is a massive 100-year-old heritage building fondly known as “the castle.” It’s more than just a landmark; it’s a piece of our collective history.  Read more about this excellent example of 20th-century architecture.

Canadian War Museum

The Canadian War Museum, a stunning structure on the banks of the Ottawa River houses the largest military history collection in Canada, spanning the period from The Seven Years’ War to the present  
The Byward Market, one of Canada’s oldest and largest public markets. Within its streets, you will find museums, cafés, specialty food shops, boutiques, restaurants and more.
Students will also have an opportunity to ride along the famous Rideau Canal and take a bus tour along Sussex Drive where our Tour Leader comments on points of interest including the residences of the Prime Minister and Governor General.
