On February 13th, 40 of our jet-setting pupils, wearing customized DEC hoodies, will be embarking on a trip of a lifetime to the city that never sleeps……. NEW YORK, NEW YORK! During their stay in the Empire city pupils will get to visit all of the major attractions. These include excursions to the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island and the opportunity to witness the breath-taking views of the New York City skyline from the top of the Empire State building at night. Pupils will also have a chance to show their respect to the victims of the 9/11 tragedy at the humbling 9/11 memorial and museum. Whilst there, they will also have a taste of the true New York lifestyle by experiencing the buzz of Times Square, the thrill of ice skating in Central Park and enjoying an evening of culture, singing along to a classic Broadway musical. No visit to New York would, of course, be complete without a spot of retail therapy and a chance to sample the local culinary delights. If this doesn’t get your mouth watering perhaps the photos in the next edition of the DEC newsletter will!
