On June 2nd, we held a general information meeting to announce trips abroad for students at Somerset Academy to Italy in the summer of 2012 and a tour of Turkey, the Aegean, and Athens in the summer of 2013.
This is an exciting development for me as I believe students should take the opportunity to travel whenever they can to broaden their views of the world in which we live. Travel gives students the opportunity for so much more than just studying from a textbook, but brings ideas and concepts to life. Students experience their world and this is a true measure of their learning.
I also created a couple of websites to supplement the trips and centralize information for everyone traveling or considering to travel with us. Italy’s tour information can be found here and the tour information for Turkey and Greece can be found here.
