Important meeting tomorrow at the language department to talk about our V Study Trip to the British Isles to Dublin (Easter 2016). For further information, have a look at Albert's blog and site.
Discovering Dublin (Our Philosophy teacher's hint)
After our success with our IV Study trip to UK: Chester, we are already thinking about next year.
Dublin is the option we have in mind and that most students voted for.
Let's see the advantages and disadvantages:
>>> DUBLIN (2014-2015 example of one group that went this year).If we do it, they will not increase the price of trip, that is, 530€. Therefore, this would be the fifth consecutive year that the total cost of the trip (school + flight + activities + coach to Málaga) is not more expensive than 800€!!!!
+ You pay in Euros, so we don't have to change.
+ The cost of the trip is fair enough.
+ Nice small city (Tourist information about the city). I have been there several times and I can assure you it is a wonderful city.
+ Possibility to visit the harbour of Howth, the harbour of Dún Laoghaire, Galway or Cork.
+ We have never been there, so students who have participated in our previous experiences could still go.
+ Host families are usually concentrated in an area of the city.
+ The weather may be a bit better than in Edinburgh, but you still have got the four seasons in one day, that is, you can have sun, rain, wind, cold.... on the same day.
- The flight is around 230€ (that was the cost of the flight this year of the group that went)
