RSIOC students enjoyed two incredible field trips. The L4 & L5 students enjoyed a trip to Pretend City to expand their imagination through pretend play. Among some of the chosen pretend occupations there were firefighters, doctors, race car drivers, fishermen, actors and actresses. Everyone had such a fun time learning, playing and connecting.
The L10 and up students participated in ‘Imaginology’ at the Orange County Fair Ground. It was an amazing experience for all. The event was enormous. Students visited a booth on how to use recycled items for art creation. There were model trains/planes, cow milking stations, prehistoric animals, soap/wood crafts, cartoon making, and 3D printing, just to name some of the remarkable events. Some students also had a chance to learn how to tie knots and rescue an injured person from a sea cadet. Others had a chance to learn about electricity and helped to build a city using anything they could imagine to the benefit of the citizens of this imaginary city. During this field trip imaginations were soaring and students and teachers bonded even more outside of the classroom as they enjoyed being goofy and laughing out loud together!
