100 years after the end of WWI in Europe, only the opening salvo in a century of strife, a group of students, parents, and staff from NSA and PCA will be retracing the steps of our forefathers. The trip will include the sights and sounds of Berlin, Amsterdam, Brussels and Paris while hitting many battlefields in between. From the landing beaches at Juno and Dieppe, to the trenches of the Somme, Vimy Ridge, Arras, and Ypres, to the hallowed ground of the Anne Frank House and Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp, we will come to truly know what it means to be Canadian. For ten days we will travel the route that our ancestors took in WWII; from the beginning to the end of Operation Overlord, all the while taking in other cultural and national attractions such as the Eiffel Tower, the Palace of Versailles, and Brandenburg Gate. Every student will have a chance to apply and enhance their understanding of the Social 10, 20, and 30 courses, particularly when it comes to understanding the historical context in which Canada has grown as a nation. Having the opportunity to experience the cultural and historical context in which so many Canadians sacrificed their lives for our way of life is invaluable life experience, never mind the curricular application to complicated concepts such as globalization, nationalism, and ideologies. Students completing this trip, over the Easter Break in 2018, will also earn credits as part of Western World History 30. The trip has room for 42 students, comprised of those who will be in grades 10-12 in 2018 and parents thereof! The cost is $3725 for students and $4115 for parents. If you enroll in the next month you will receive a $100 discount.
