BHS Trojans Heading Abroad | UK March 2016

Bowness High School would like to announce a possible student educational trip coming up for March 2016. We are hoping to bring a group of 35+ students to explore the United Kingdom with EF Educational Tours! Please join us Wednesday, June 3rd at 6:30 in the Bowness High School Theatre for a parent/student information meeting regarding our upcoming UK 2016 trip.  Students must sign up by June 30th to receive a $149 travel incentive.  At this point we are trying to see what the student and family interest is to be sure we have a large enough group attending.  We will also have to apply to get official permission from the Calgary Board of Education once we determine there are enough students interested.  See our school website for more information or contact Dawn Berry at 403-286-5092 ext 2150 or at Hope to see you there!
