Bonjour familles!

Here is the field trip info:

Program Description (Le Groupe Swing)

Are you ready to be swept up in a tornado of music and dancing? This energetic urban folk band will get kids off their feet and dancing up a storm.  A favourite of Franco-Ontarians, the band has performed over 1,000 concerts for their young fans.  A fusion of fast fiddling, RnB, rock and traditional French music, these folk bandits provide non-stop, upbeat rhythms for an exuberant dance party they call Tradarnac.  An exciting visual feast with catchy songs, electrifying fiddlework and contagious dancing, we guarantee that by the end of the show, you won’t be sitting in your seat!



  • All groups are to remain in the designated Children’s Festival zone (except when we walk to the Revue Stage)
  • Please do not send money as the kids will NOT be allowed to purchase items from the canteen (cotton candy, slushies, etc.)
  • We will meet at the classroom at 9:00 am
  • All students and parents should bring a bag lunch (INCLUDING students on the Hot lunch Program)
