Primary Level Field Trip Program
Go Behind-the-Scenes at the OHS
OHS field trips are designed to provide students in Grades 1-6 with educational and interactive on-site programming, where they can learn all about the OHS, responsible pet ownership and animal welfare. Through a combination of educational outreach and curriculum-linked humane education topics, students will be engaged in understanding the importance of animal welfare and responsible pet ownership. Field trips are available to teachers in the Ottawa area, Monday-Friday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., throughout the school year. Field trips are three hours in length and include a half hour lunch break for students at 11:30 a.m. Field trips cater to groups ranging in size from 20 students to 60 students, and are available in French and English.
The cost for a field trip is $5 per student; teachers and parent volunteers are free. Payment is due on day of the field trip; all methods of payment are accepted. Invoicing is not available, but a formal receipt can be provided if required by the school administrator.
