MPUE Organized Trips and Events

Manitoba Parents for Ukrainian Education believes it is important that students in the EUBP have an opportunity to understand there is a larger world outside of the walls of their schools and experience first hand being part of a larger community. To support this, MPUE organizes inter-school EUBP field trips at each grade level, beginning in grade 4. Students annually have a chance to meet EUBP peers from across the Province, contributing to the enhancement of the Program.
