Today we were fortunate to speak to Mr. Bagshaw’s Grade 8 Outdoor Eduction students on the last day of their exams at Avalon School. We met Mr. Bagshaw at MEC Bikefest about a month ago, excited about our trip he asked if we’d be interested on speaking to his students.
We had a packed class of about 30 attentive students who were engaged and asked fantastic questions. The plan is for the students to follow us throughout our adventures and to interact with us while we are on the road. The details still have to be hashed out but we are thinking along the lines of the class being able to research our route and provide suggestions regarding logistics of our trip. There’s the possibility of video conferencing with them and potentially meeting the class in Costa Rica during one of their field trips.
We’ll keep everyone posted on the program we develop with Avalon School and we are really looking forward to working with the students throughout our trip!
Thanks again for having us and we’ll chat soon!
