Activities and Field Trips

Terry Fox Run (September/October)

Every school year in September the students at Elizabeth Ballantyne are invited to participate in this great cause which raises money for the Terry Fox Foundation. The children run or walk anywhere from 1 to 2 kilometers on a route in Montreal West. The event is followed by a corn roast that involves the whole school. Everybody at EBS has a wonderful time and this is all done for a great cause.

Halo Road Race (April/May)

Every year Elizabeth Ballantyne is well represented on Mont Royal for this annual running event, which is attended by many GMAA schools. Cycles 2 and 3 students are invited to participate to run a 1 km or 2 km race. The students are given the opportunity to compete against students from other schools. It is fun for all the students and a great experience.

Graduation Trip (June)

In June, the grade 6 graduating class takes part in this great trip to Quebec City. They visit the historical city and have the opportunity to reenact the war between the British and the French on the Plains of Abraham. The trip would not be complete without Laser Quest and a visit to the Aquarium.
