The 2019 grad trip was a great experience for all who went. There was a total of 33 grads and 10 chaperones on the trip to Alberta. Leaving at midnight May 19, the tour included a 7-day journey to Calgary, Lake Louise in Bannf National Park, the Calgary Tower, University of Calgary and Tsuu T’ina First Nation. The travellers arrived at their destination in Calgary about 4 pm the following day. There were plenty of stops to shop and bring home souvenirs.


“Everyone enjoyed themselves with plenty of interesting stops, much laughter and excitement,” said Councillor Annette Spence-Meeches who was a chaperone. “The Gondola ride up Sulphur Mountain and Skyline Luge at Canada Olympic Park were especially exhilarating. I’m sure the memories will stay with everyone who went.”
At the University of Calgary students had plenty of questions to ask the guide about curriculum and their aspirations for higher education. sightseeingViews from Lake Louise

On the final day, all chaperones and students enjoyed breakfast before departing for home. Students shared stories of their adventures, clearly inspired by what they’d seen and experienced. All participants want to thank the Peguis School Board and Peguis Surrender Trust for making this a great memory. Ekosi.
