¡Vamos a viajar! (Let’s travel)


The Royal Bay Language department is planning another amazing trip to SPAIN for Spring Break 2021. We will fly in to Madrid and travel south for a ten day tour of Seville, Granada, Malaga and the Costa del Sol (sunshine and beach time). There are limited spots available as we would like to keep the group under 25 students. Monthly payments are available and cost includes flights, hotels, transportation and all meals except lunch. This is a fantastic opportunity for students to learn about Spanish culture and practice speaking the language.

With the outbreak of measles in Vancouver, BC, families may be wondering what steps they can take to protect themselves from measles. Vaccination is the best method of protection. All school-age children and adults born in 1970 or later should have 2 doses of MMR vaccine for full protection. Most people born before 1970 are immune to measles because of past exposure or disease.

Please take some time to check your vaccination records to see if you or your children need additional vaccination. Vaccination is available from physicians, pharmacists (for adults and children over 5 years), and public health units (for children). Call ahead to your healthcare provider to ensure that MMR is available at your appointment.

If you have any questions or would like more information about measles and MMR vaccine, please visit healthlinkbc.ca and immunizebc.ca
