The Saskatoon Public School Division, along with City Park School provide the teachers, facilities, and some of the required gear. Students are required to pay a $200.00 fee to cover the costs of transportation, supplies, and required operational expenses. Acceptance into the program is not based on the ability to pay. We have been generously donated money to help with fees and other expenses. Please contact Rebecca Elson or Tyler Rittinger, by email email@example.com
if you are inquiring about an Ecoquest Bursary.
How To Apply
Please print the attached Application Package:
Read all the instructions carefully and have your teacher send the school referral form through the school mail.
Students are asked to:
Complete the application thoroughly with support from your parent(s) or guardian(s). Carefully write a word processed one-page letter which explains why you feel you belong in the Ecoquest program.
All completed applications must be received in person or mail to City Park School, 820 9th Avenue North, Saskatoon SK S7K 2Z2 by the application deadline of April 8th at 4:00 pm. No application will be accepted after this date. Students will be notified of their status by e-mail during the first week of June based on the one listed for the "First Parent/Guardian" on the registration form.
The Ecoquest program demands a high level of commitment, responsibility and independence. It is for this reason that a student's application must reflect a responsible, mature and cooperative approach to learning. A healthy lifestyle is an important prerequisite as students must be capable of physically rigorous activity.
Students are eligible for the selection process based on completeness of the application package: student registration form, student essay, school evaluation, student self-assessment. The school evaluation and student essay will be assessed by the committee made up of teachers and administrators. All applicants meeting the eligibility will be put into a random lottery. After random selection all students will be notified of their status by mail. Preference will be given to students who attend Saskatoon Public Schools first. Students outside of SPS would be considered if spots remain.
