Mr. McPhee's Grade 4/5 Class will be going on a field trip courtesy of the Salt Spring Island Conservancy. On Monday, October 5th students will take the bus to and from Cusheon Cove to learn about the evidence of Asian and European settler land use, the history of the sawmill and participate in activities including compass work, First Nations plant technology, the museum, and wood craft. The class already had their "pre-trip" session to construct a field journal and will end with a "post-trip" session on 'the meaning of trees to us'
