October is a really fun month. Students are beginning to feel more comfortable with each other and they want to go out and enjoy themselves. Friendships are being formed and it is chance for people to just sit down and chat. It is also the last chance to take a day trip outside of Toronto with Connect. The Fall Leaves Tour is a final Day Trip of the year.

A minimum of 8+ students is required to run an activity.
If the numbers are less than above, you must receive permission from the Director to run the activity. Do not run an activity without the required numbers or permission from the Director.
The Big Events
We have 2 Big Events in October:
Fall Leaves Tour - a day trip to the Scenic Caves of Blue Mountain. Lots of fun and a great day to see the beauty of the leaves. The first Saturday after Thanksgiving is best.
Halloween - organize the Halloween Day at Connect. Must include singing, dancing and a costume party during conversation class. All students MUST wear a costume. During conversation class, each room has a different activity. Advanced students must perform the dance. Pick a song from Halloween and get them dancing on the street!

The Old Spaghetti Factory has been a popular place for Restaurant Night. The price is usually quite reasonable. As well as Brazilian restaurants. Make sure you pre-order the food and collect money before going to the restaurant. Students should pay for the drink only at the restaurant.
Held on the second floor of the Rivoli. A great time for students to meet and enjoy.
