Appendices – Descriptions of additional resources and links:

 

To reduce planning time and support you in planning a successful event, we have prepared supplementary resources.  Below you will find descriptions of the additional activities and resources found on the Ottawa Student Transportation Authority’s (OSTA) website.  This information is easy to use, copy, paste, modify, and make your own.

Here is the list and hyperlinks to the additional resources:
