Toronto School Trip
This 2-day Toronto school trip let us discover the different aspects of this vibrant city. We played as
professional hockey players, travelled back in time within the ROM, dived into the waters of
Ripley’s Aquarium, cheered for the Blue Jays and much more!
HOCKEY HALL OF FAME
The Hockey Hall of Fame is the sanctuary of Ice Hockey! Here we saw a replica of the Montreal
Canadian dressing room, an exhibit of 90 goalie masks and the famous Stanley Cup! Students and
teachers had fun playing interactive games and acting as goalies, shooters or as sport announcers.
The Royal Ontario Museum displays art, world culture and natural history. It is the largest museum
in Canada. Upon arriving, we travelled back in time, discovering fossils and dinosaurs millions of
years old. We walked among the cultures of Greek Romans and Egyptians. We finished in The
Schad Gallery exploring life on planet earth: life in the past, present and future.
The Ripley’s Aquarium holds 5.7 million litres (1.5 million gallons) of water and it is home to more
than 20,000 animals. We walked in the” Dangerous Lagoon” home to the longest moving sidewalk
in North America! We walked among Sand Tiger Sharks, Green Sea Turtles, Queensland Grouper,
and many others!
We had the opportunity to pet the stingrays and the Scarlet Cleaner Shrimps gave us the manicure!
BLUE JAYS GAME
The first day ended with the long-awaited Blue Jays game. The Toronto team played against the
New York Yankees. Unfortunately the Blue Jays didn’t win, but we cheered anyways!
