January bursary draw results

Last month we had 272 people enter the field trip bursary draw and we gave away 10, $200 bursaries to teachers. With each draw we ask participants for a little bit of information to help us better understand more about why teachers incorporate field trips into their practice and who they are.

Teachers who participated in this draw represented 25 BC school districts. Most teachers are located in the lower mainland but we did have teachers from districts ranging from Sooke to Prince George. Most teachers (79%) work in elementary schools, 11% in high schools and the remaining in middle schools, K – 9 schools and preschools. We were excited to see that 3.5% of participants were first year teachers—it is great to see new teachers including field trips in their practice. About 10% of the participants (and two of the ‘winners’ of a bursary) were teacher candidates. The graph below illustrates the distribution (in percentages) of teaching experience of the participants.

We always enjoy reading the comments and suggestions teachers include with their responses. Please keep them coming.
