First High School Calgary Campus Open Minds

Being given the opportunity to venture from the safety of R.T.H.S., to explore the streets of downtown Calgary, walk around Stephen Avenue, through Poppy Plaza and Memorial Drive, across the Peace Bridge to City Hall as well as the Municipal Building was one of the greatest experiences I’ve ever had; I learned so much more about our wonderful city and province (past and present) that might not have been learned otherwise if we were at school in our regular Humanities 20 classroom. If someone asked me if I would do this trip again, I would say, “for sure!” because we were able to see firsthand our world from the perspective of the workforce as well as normal everyday life in Calgary. This was definitely a worthwhile experience.
