Library Field Trips A Big Hit With Our Children
Both of our schools had the privilege of attending a behind
the scenes tour at the main branch of the Richmond public
library. In addition to learning how to find the best books and
DVDs, we also had an exciting “behind the scenes” tour.
Each child had the opportunity to see how a book is returned
as well as have the chance to return one themselves using the
library return system. The children loved this activity as they
were able to scan in a book to be returned using the library’s
computer system and then watch as the book they scanned
made it’s way to the appropriate return bin.

RCMP Visit to Williams
We were very excited to have a member of the Richmond
RCMP detachment come to our Williams location to visit
our students. The children were very excited for this visit
and had created their own police hats in preparation for
the visit. The children all had a chance to sit in a real
police car as well as learn about the role the police play in
Judging by the number of children who have said they
“want to be a policeman (policewoman)” since the visit,
we can safely say that this visit was a huge success!
The RCMP will be visiting our Ferris classrooms on
Wednesday November 8th. This visit will start promptly at
9am so please do your best to have your children in class
by this time.

your child. We will provide different time slots for parents to sign-up for in the coming
