Although the Golden Square Mile around Trafalgar offers an array of history at our doorstep, Traf girls love to expand their knowledge of the world that lies beyond 3495 Simpson.
The annual class trips begin the school year with orientation and team-building activities at locales in the Laurentians and greater Montreal. Sec. I-IV students participate in one-day trips or school-based activities, while the ever-popular 5-day graduation trip to Washington DC proves an invaluable learning experience for the Form V girls as they explore the rich cultural offerings available in the U.S. capital.
Form V students apply to be World School delegates who travel each October to an international host city. Since 1999, Trafalgar has represented Canada at this annual, two week, international forum that invites delegates from twenty-four countries to discuss a common theme and learn about our cultural differences.
Our 2014 World School delegation prepared a video for their booth at the forum in Vladivostok, Russia in September.
As part of Trafalgar's involvement in the World School Society, we are proud to have a student exchange program with “sister” schools in Rheine, Germany (Kopernikus-Gymnasium), Busto Arsizio, Italy (Istituto Tecnico Enrico Tosi) and Maidstone, England (Invicta Grammar School) . These connections allow us to provide international experiences that will help create a sense of global awareness amongst Trafalgar students.
Traf's Choir and Senior Band often travel to New York or Boston to compete in music festivals and take in the cultural happenings of these vibrant cities. Traf athletes have travelled to both Canadian coasts to compete in CAIS Soccer tournaments. Victoria, BC and Halifax, NS have been hosts to our debating teams and senior students have travelled to Alberta to attend leadership conferences.
No doubt about it - Traf girls travel! #trafontour
