To all those involved in delivering Canada’s Coolest School Trip,
The Grade 8 Caronport Elementary School would like to express their enormous appreciation for all of the time, effort and expertise that you shared with them on their trip to Cape Breton, it truly was the coolest school trip ever.

We were so impressed with the time and energy that went into the careful planning of our adventure.  Not one detail was overlooked; we were cared for, spoiled actually, at every location.  We were made to feel incredibly special and were welcomed everywhere we went during the trip. Along the way we learned so many wonderful things; we experienced moments that we’ll never forget, that can never be duplicated and that will always be treasured memories.

The food and the hospitality were overwhelming.  Everywhere we went we were blessed with amazing meals and friendly faces.  You truly went above and beyond the call of duty by making sure all of our needs were met, answering all of our questions and continuing to smile even when we were running behind schedule.

You were tremendous ambassadors for your professions and great examples of what it means to serve others joyfully regardless of the circumstances.  The scenery and the parks were spectacular; it was breathtaking to see another region of Canada that is so beautiful and so vastly different from our prairie home.  It would be very interesting to see how many of our students follow your career paths.

Thank you for the learning, the laughter and lifetime of once in a lifetime memories and for giving us the coolest school trip ever!  Mission accomplished!

Sincerely yours,

The Caronport Elementary Grade 8 Class
