Europe trip offered to students

Switzerland, Italy, Spain and France on 2018 agenda

A once-in-a-lifetime trip is being offered to North Okanagan high school students and their parents.

Students have selected to go on an excursion to Switzerland, Italy, France and Spain.

“Global awareness is more essential than ever for our children, and the best way to become globally aware is by travelling abroad,” said Paul Britton, tour organizer, from Armstrong’s Pleasant Valley Secondary School.

“Experiencing new cultures opens students’ eyes to the world and provides valuable life skills to help them prepare for the future. More and more colleges and universities are looking for international experience on students’ applications to set them apart.

“Travel isn’t just educational; it’s an investment that gives your child an advantage in a competitive world.”

There was a parent/student meeting May 4, and information was shared with about 25-30 parents and students. The tour is operated by EF Educational Tours.

There are a limited number of spots available and the tour will fill up quickly.

EF will guarantee the price until May 31, when the costs could increase.

“EF has offered some early incentives for signing up before May 31 that total over $400,” said Britton.

To enroll, log onto www.eftours.ca and enter the Tour # 1937011PC.

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that will truly set your child apart,” said Britton.

“As usual we welcome students from throughout the North Okanagan-Shuswap and Vernon school districts.”
