Over this April Vacation, alongside the Guatemala Trip, other RHS students and staff traveled to England, Ireland and Scotland.

The trip consisted of 46 students chaperoned by six RHS faculty members. According to the leader of the RHS Travel Club, Kristen Walsh, everything went well. She said, “[The kids] had good attitudes, were open minded.” She also reflected upon the awesome tour guides they had that were funny, yet extremely informative about places and history that might be unfamiliar to most students.

Ms. Walsh said the crowd favorite was probably Edinburgh in Scotland. She explained that the city was very different from the ones we are used to here. In Scotland, they visited Edinburgh Castle.

Another beloved spot was London, England where they spent three days. One of the favorite spots on the trip was the London Eye, a giant Ferris wheel on the South Bank of the River Thames in London, that they visited at night.  She said it gave them  a “cool view.”

They also spent four days in Ireland: two days in Northern Ireland, as well as two in Dublin. In Northern Ireland they spent some time at Giant’s Causeway, a formation of rocks the students had the opportunity to climb.Ms. Walsh explained she thoroughly enjoyed the tour guides who discussed subjects like the problems and conflicts that have taken place in the country, and made them funny and enjoyable to learn about.

It was an enjoyable trip that also gave cultural and historical lessons to the Rockland High School students.
