Students and staff from Loreto College who will travel to the USA later this month for a Geography trip
12/10/2018 LORETO COLLEGE STUDENTS USA-BOUND

On Thursday 25th October a group of 45 Loreto College students, led by Mr L Shaw and accompanied by teachers Ms C Marron, Mrs M McCullough, Mrs M McGreevy and Ms J Wilson, will leave Coleraine for an exciting excursion to the USA.  The trip, centred in the Loreto College Geography Department, has taken 18 months to plan and both students and staff are very excited to be embarking on such a wonderful adventure.

Their journey takes the Loreto group from Coleraine, via Dublin, to two major American cities, Los Angeles and Las Vegas, where they will spend six packed days exploring and learning about the geographical, historical and cultural significance of both cities and visiting the main tourist destinations.  Highlights of the trip will include visits to the Grand Canyon, the Hoover Dam, Hollywood, Sony & Universal Studios as well as the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory and California Science Centre.

Many of the students are also looking forward to tasting the wide range of foods available and of course anticipating the wide range of shopping opportunities on offer.   Evenings will be taken up with an exciting programme of entertainment and cultural events.

This will surely be the trip of a lifetime for all going.
