Europe Trip 2020

Expand Your Horizons and Experience History

The Westside Schools Europe Trip 2020

The students in next year's Grade 9 to 12 classes will have the opportunity of a lifetime: to experience the history of World War II in person and on location. No we won't be time-travelling, but Mr. Forrey will be leading a trip to France and Belgium that will bring history to life. 

It's one thing to read about the events that have molded our world today, it's another to experience the historical sites where it all happened and learn about it up-close. The ten-day trip will take students to Paris, Vimy, and Normandy. 

Highlights will including visiting some of Paris' most famous landmarks including the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, and the Gardens of Versailles. Further highlights will be visiting the spectacular Rouen Cathedral, going on a Seine River Cruise, and taking a guided tour of Vimy Ridge.
