Dydd Gwyl Dewi Hapus!
For the seventh year running, Schools Into Europe celebrated Welsh culture at St David’s Welsh Festival at Disneyland® Paris! As Wales’ leading school tour operator, we organised for over a thousand Welsh pupils and teachers to attend the festival, which included Mickey and Minnie in Welsh costume, Welsh performers and a themed firework display. Three of our staff joined in the celebrations, and were thrilled to watch our own Ysgol Duffryn Ogwen give a fantastic performance at the Videopolis Theatre in Discoveryland!
Having recently organised trips with Schools Into Europe, groups from the Burgate School have posted reviews of their experiences in London and Nice on their website!
Schools Into Europe welcomes pupils from Llanishen High School
As part of its partnership with CiLT Cymru, Schools Into Europe was visited by pupils from Llanishen High School, in order for the pupils to see the ways in which our staff use their Modern Foreign Language skills. Schools Into Europe has been working with the school, which is located in Cardiff, for a number of years, and was thrilled to once again be given the opportunity of welcoming pupils and teachers from the school into our offices. For more information on the visit, please click here to visit CiLT Cymru’s website.
Schools Into Europe was thrilled to have raised £228 for the BBC’s Children in Need Appeal.
Staff fundraised in the office, and the Company trebled the amount raised before donating.
Mark the centenary of the Great War in the battlefields on which it was fought.
Schools Into Europe commends the government for its promise of £50 million to be spent on remembering the First World War on the centenary of its outbreak in 2014. Part of this fund has been secured in order to help secondary school children visit the battlefields, and Schools Into Europe very much hopes that this will give even more children the opportunity of seeing where history was made. From the rebuilt town of Ypres, ever in remembrance, to the haunting tunnels of Vimy Ridge, nowhere is the human cost of war more apparent. The area is also home to a collection of world famous museums, most notable of which is the newly refurbished In Flanders Fields Museum, and children and adults alike cannot help but be struck by the dreadful logistics of a conflict fought for a lasting peace which was not to be. Enrich your pupils’ learning experience and give them a deeper understanding; contact us today for your tailor-made quotation for your visit to the battlefields in 2014.
Schools Into Europe proudly supports the Tylorstown Band.
Schools Into Europe is delighted to sponsor Tylorstown Band’s Christmas Fayre, which will take place on Saturday, 8th December 2012. The band, which traces its history back to 1920, and which last year was named Champion Band of Wales, is well known in its area, and we are thrilled to be able to contribute to its continuing success.
