Around the World

Around+the+World

    One of the many trips being offered this school year is an educational based trip to Peru.

   Two of the Spanish teachers, Mrs. Nunez and Mrs. Stennett, organized an eight-day trip in order to teach students cultural diversity and the history behind Peru. This trip was open to any student and family member and currently has ten students traveling with a few chaperones.

   “I haven’t visited South Africa before, so I want to see that part of the world,” Stennett said.

   Students will leave early July 9th and will start their adventure almost immediately. Visitations to the Castle of Lima, Machu Picchu, and the capital of Peru will be on the student itinerary.

   Multiple trips to an elementary school will be included in the trip and will encourage students to interact with children and look at education through a new perspective.

   The basis of this trip is to encourage students to travel and experience new cultures and to develop a different perspective on the world.

   Students will be having authentic cooking classes, conversations about food and contrasting cultures, and will be cramming in information about the country.

   “Even if you can’t go on these trips, try and travel in your lifetime. It really does change your life and perspective on the world, it changes who you are,” Stennett said.

A Trip Around Ireland

The Credo mass is an example of what students will be preforming in Ireland.

The Choir Department was given the opportunity to perform in the Limerick music festival in Ireland. This festival is made up of orchestras and choral groups from across Ireland and America.

This trip allows musically inclined students to perform in a international festival and experience different cultures at the same time.

  Not many schools get the chance to travel to a foreign country and participate in a musical festival among Irish and American Cultures.  Students attending this trip will be performing a mass by Mozart at the Limerick university and Christ Cathedral Church in Dublin, Ireland.

   The trip is from June 5-13, and five of those days will consist of rehearsals and performances for the festival. The rest of the trip will be spent touring the land of Ireland and touring coast lines, cliffs, and castles where students will get a chance to kiss the famous Blarney Stone at Blarney Castle.

  “My favorite part is sitting back and watching my students perform in all of these wonderful places. During the festival I won’t need to sing or direct or do anything, I just get to sit back and watch them perform,” Choir Director Nathan Cornelius said.

   Students on this trip will get the chance to build a passion for traveling internationally and witness other cultures through music. Not only is this a trip for students but it helps build the reputation of the Choir department and allows further opportunities to occur.
