Expanding Horizons is a program developed by The Cmolik Foundation whereby grade 5 students at a designated inner city school receive two extraordinary field trips per year. Aviation Day is one such field trip. This particular field trip was shot in May, 2013 as students and staff from Lena Shaw Elementary School (Surrey, British Columbia) are treated to a wonderful day of adventure and learning. The Cmolik Foundation manages every aspect of the field trips including creating the activity, linking the field trip to future career opportunities, organizing volunteers, chaperons, transportation and funding of the field trips.
The goal is to expand the student’s horizons by providing new experiences they may not otherwise have the opportunity to receive. By exposing students to new experiences and linking the field trips to future career opportunities we believe this will generate aspirations for higher learning and continued education. Many of these students will be the first member of their family to attend a post secondary institution.
Thanks to all the tireless volunteers for their help in making this day possible. Hope you enjoy it!
