ON THE ROAD AGAIN
Once again Loreto students take to their travels. The Department of History, Politics and Classical Civilisation has run trips to Paris, Greece, Berlin and the USA. This year the students spent 8 days in the United States seeing the sights of New York, Philadelphia and Washington DC. The trip began with a spectacular visit to the Empire State Building at night and was followed by tourist trips such as the Statue of Liberty; educational visits directly related to the History A level course we follow and real fun stuff: watching staff and students dance on the Big piano in FAO Schwartz was a hoot. There were so many highlights: the mad bus driver in DC; seeing Independence Hall knowing Jefferson and Adams actually sat there; watching the SWAT guys abseil down the rocks at Liberty Island; the New York breakfasts. And then there was the truly unforgettable: getting tickets to the visitors' gallery in the Senate and the tour of the United Nations. Amazing! Here's to the next time.
