A group of our pupils and staff embarked on an exciting 8 day educational, cultural and fun trip to two of the World’s most important cities; Washington DC and New York, with a view to aiding learning and engaging students with oft-used examples in Geography, History and Politics lessons.
The trip included 3 nights in New York City and 3 nights in Washington DC. Highlights of the tour were: Washington’s famous monuments, a visit to the Capitol Building, Smithsonian Institute, up the Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, UN building, the 9/11 Memorial, catching a Broadway show, watching a baseball game and a spot of shopping – to name a few.
