Winter break is a good time for students to rest and relieve the pressure from heavy schoolwork. Among all the choices we have during winter break, traveling is one of the most popular things to do. For those who love traveling, travel week is a wonderful opportunity not only to enjoy time traveling with friends but also to gain community service hours. This year, we will be traveling to Britain and Ireland from January 5th 2013 to January 14th 2013. Each student attending travel week will gain up to 10 hours of community service.
We are excited to have Mr. Hand as the leader for the trip this year. In the past years, travel week has always been an event that Fairmont students actively participate in. It is a great chance to explore new places and have new experiences. Many students also become friends with people who they never talked to before during the trip. For those international students attending the trip, please be sure to get your visas as soon as possible. Thank you to all students who participate in travel week. It will be a trip to remember!
