Twenty-four students and four members of staff set off for New York on Saturday 3 December. The bus left the school and headed to Madrid for a night’s stay in a hostel before the next day’s long journey to New York. It was great to see the Christmas lights and decorations in La Plaza Mayor in Madrid, to enjoy an Italian meal and to also get a good night’s sleep before the early start the following day.
The flight to New York was long but eventually it ended. After being stuck in a traffic jam on the way into New York City, the group finally arrived at the Hotel and headed straight out to see some of the sights of the city including Top of the Rock and the Christmas decorations and lights. Everyone was exhausted after a day of travelling and were happy to have an early night.
