    GRAD TRIP - A WARNING FOR PARENTS

    Parents may have heard about a ‘grad’ trip or ‘S’ trip from your graduating student.

    Please be advised that this is NOT a school sanctioned event. St. Ignatius High School  does not organize grad trips. These trips are organized by a private company and are in no way approved by nor affiliated with our school or school board.

    Parents are advised to do due diligence and contact the company directly for complete details. We have no contact details nor information about the trip - your student should be able to provide it to you.
