While the younger children were busy being Superheroes, the senior students were on a virtual field trip to Wonderland for their special end-of-year party day. Who says you can’t ride roller coasters during COVID? I quote, ‘Yukon Striker was insane!’ The virtual roller coaster experience (and cliff diving show) didn’t disappoint. In between rides at…
