Over 120 grade six and seven students got up early one Wednesday morning and was at the school by 5:30 a.m. in order to make the 7:00 a.m. ferry to our beautiful capital city of Victoria.  What an amazing learning experience at the Royal British Columbia Museum that hosted a major new feature exhibition, Egypt: The Time of the Pharaohs with over 300 original artifacts.  The students were engaged in a study covering all aspects of ancient Egyptian life, including life along the Nile River and the influence of it on the civilization.  They also enjoyed the beautiful Victoria Harbour and dinner at the Old Spaghetti Factory before catching the 7:00 p.m. ferry back to the mainland.  We were very impressed with how responsible the students were on this long day.  What an undertaking, but also what a wonderful learning experience for the students!
