​What Would Be Your Dream School Trip ?

Posted February 14, 2017 Oahu-Hawaii-Beach

Over the past couple of months I have attended a number of teacher events aimed at teachers of Humanities and asked 60 teachers a simple question, What would be your dream school trip?

There are 3 clear winners - the USA, Berlin and Iceland.There are clearly popular destinations and rightly so as all three are excellent destinations with numerous opportunities to expand on classwork.

But it is further down the list where things get interesting; France, Poland and Hawaii all on around 8% of the total vote. Just below these are Japan, Russia and South Africa.

Reflecting on this further, I have arranged educational tours to 9 of the top ten destinations – all accept Hawaii! Hopefully I shall get an enquiry soon…

Countries voted for and the number of votes:

10 - USA
09 - BERLIN
09 - ICELAND
04 - FRANCE
04 - KRAKOW
04 - HAWAII
03 - RUSSIA
03 - SOUTH AFRICA
03 - JAPAN
