Seerah Mission School
Field Trip to Woodbine Fantast Fair
By Laylah Bharadia, Grade 7
On Wednesday, November 19th, the students, parents, and teachers of Seerah Mission School went on a trip to Woodbine Fantasy Fair. We all had a blast on this trip.
The bus ride there, the students sang the song, “Give Thanks to Allah”. We sounded pretty good.
When we reached the fair, we had to wait patiently to get our tickets. It seemed like forever before we were able to place our things in the party room, and split into groups. We ate our lunch at the time. The younger children were hungry. The rest of us enjoyed a light snack before we got to go on the rides. There was a drop tower, a Merry-Go-Round, an X-D theater, a mini roller coaster, a train, bumper cars, a playground, and much more. My favourite ride was the Drop Tower. I experienced it the most that day, about 6 times. One of the times, we went with Sr. Raihana. She squeezed my hand so hard, I thought it would crush. It was so funny the way she screamed and kicked her feet. Another thrill I enjoyed, was the Rock Climbing wall, which many of the students got to experience, and enjoyed, as well. I was able to climb quite high and my teachers, who were watching me, were really impressed by my efforts. It was an experience I would love to do again. We had a wonderful time, screaming and laughing with our beloved teachers and friends.
Soon, it was Zhuhr time and everyone met back in the party room to pray. Some of us ate our lunches, along with the delicious samosas Sr. Majidah had brought for everyone. Then, we continued to enjoy the rides.
Pretty soon, it was As’r time. After praying, unfortunately, we had to leave. We all wanted a few more minutes to enjoy one more thrill but it was time for us to catch the bus and get back to school.
On the bus ride home, everyone was talking and laughing about the day’s experience. It was loud and noisy. The time we left was rush hour and we were stuck in traffic for a long time. Not only was it rush hour, but the weather took a turn for the worse. It began to snow quite heavily and this caused further delay on the highway. The ride was long and tiring. Eventually, after a long and tiresome drive, we reached the school much later than we expected. Parents had been waiting for us. Some came to school and left. Others were calling the school wondering where we were. I reached home at a late hour. I remember it was after 6.
The thrilling time students, teachers and volunteers of Seerah Mission School had, was an experience of a lifetime, and filled with memories we will never forget.
Despite the high traffic volume and delay to reach home that evening, it was, indeed, a fun filling day! I cannot wait for the next field trip!
