In June 2009, twenty Upper School Prep students will travel to China, spending approximately two weeks visiting such landmarks as the Great Wall, the Forbidden City, Xian (home of the Terra Cotta warriors) and Shanghai.
The trip is being organized by Upper School history teacher Coco Toderan-Manson to help students gain a first-hand understanding of China’s rich history and fascinating culture, particularly important as China’s presence on the world stage increases.
Ms. Toderan-Manson has selected EF Tours, a nationally known and respected tour company, to escort the group. The first informational meeting for students and parents will be Monday, September 29th, from 7 pm to 9 pm in the Founders’ Room. Applications for the trip will be available at the meeting, and all interested students and their parents are invited to attend.
