Burnaby Montessori scheduled the last day of school with a field trip to end the school on a fun note.
A lot of kids came and joined.
I was glad that this time around. The trip to the Burnaby Montessori goes with an actual tour of the places plus the added bonus of riding the carousel as a group. It was fun to know everyone riding inside the carousel and the kids enjoyed themselves immensely. The first stop was the schoolroom with the teacher dressed up to the part and she did a bit of a backgrounder as to what school was like before. According to her, everyone was crammed inside one classroom with each row corresponding to one or two grade level.

The teacher also did a hand inspection to see if the student did a good job cleaning their hands for school.
The carousel was finally open by the time we finish the school tour and decided to go straight to the carousel so that there won't be much of a line.

* Mini Horse
I settled Kenzo on this mini horse just right for his size but being the daredevil that he is, he won't allow it and changed to the regular horse while I hold on to him throughout the ride.

The tour went on to the bus. Volunteers worked thousand of hours to restore the bus to it's glory.

...a tour of the stores from back then as well...
Kenzo preferred to look at the olden car.

* Kimi decided to pose instead of going in with the crowd
Alas, it was time to say goodbye and go our separate ways. It was officially the start of Summer vacation.

We went home but not until we got some ice creams for the kids to enjoy.
