The highly anticipated Spring Break trip for 2009 is headed to Greece with 17 lucky students. The group will be staying at the Polis Grand Hotel, a 4 star hotel right in the heart of Athens.
This resort features a rooftop restaurant with a fantastic view of the Parthenon. Within walking distance is the Plaka, a wonderful shopping district for bargain hunters. Wow, and what adventure lies ahead!…
After a day of rest to recover from the flight, the group will board a motor coach for a guided tour of Athens. Highlights include the Acropolis and museum and the Panathinaiko Stadium, where the first modern olympic games took place in 1896.
Another landmark is Delphi, home of the Temple of Apollo and the Oracle of Delphi. These poor students will then have to board a five day cruise stopping at the islands, Hydra, Poros and Aegina.
Part of the annual spring break trip includes an emphasis on community service and education. Many of our students are majoring in early childhood education, so visiting a Greek preschool in Athens will be a wonderful experience for both students; CIP and preschoolers. I can’t think of a better way to learn about a culture then through the eyes of its children.
