On Thursday 27th October, a group of 44 Loreto College students, led by Mr L Shaw and accompanied by teachers Ms C Marron, Mrs M McCullough, Mrs M McGreevy and Ms J Wilson, will leave Coleraine for an exciting excursion to the USA.

The trip, centred in the Loreto College Geography Department, has taken 18 months to plan and both students and staff are very excited to be embarking on such a wonderful adventure.

Their journey takes the Loreto group from Coleraine, via Dublin, to three major American cities, Philadelphia, Washington and New York, where they will spend six packed days exploring and learning about the geographical, historical and cultural significance of all three cities and visiting the main tourist destinations.

Many of the students are also looking forward to tasting the wide range of foods available and of course anticipating the wide range of shopping opportunities on offer. Evenings will be taken up with an exciting programme of entertainment and cultural events.
