The Mini provides a learning experience like no other. Through a variety of annual field trips, students explore the curriculum beyond the classroom, gaining a perspective that perfectly compliments the in-school material. The field trips also help grow the strong social aspect of the Mini, facilitating the development of leadership skills and encouraging student bonding across all grades.
Vancouver International Writers' Festival
This Field Trip usually takes place in October and is for all grades.
Held at Granville Island, the Vancouver International Writers Festival (VIWF) boasts book readings, spoken word performances, and intimate discussions with authors and poets from both within Canada and around the world. Through interaction with these professionals, students gain a greater appreciation for literature in all its different forms, as well as tips to further develop their own literary style in written or oral compositions.
