It was a great trip once before, and it’s being offered again.

Armstrong’s Pleasant Valley Secondary School is planning its second trip to Italy and Greece for Spring Break 2013.

This trip is open to all North Okanagan Shuswap school district students currently in Grades 9, 10 and 11.

“The school went on this trip in 2009 and it was so popular that it is being offered again,” said PVSS teacher and organizer Paul Britton. “The cost of the trip is very similar to the cost in 2009,  and the company, EF Tours, has been around for more than 40 years. By signing up early, parents and students can make monthly payments to ease the cost.”

Any parent or student may go on the website, www.eftours.ca, and view the Florence, Rome Athens tour which is #1103164.

“This is an amazing trip which culminates with a four-day cruise of the Greek Islands,” said Britton. “The students came home last year so excited about this trip that we are going to do it again by popular demand. Last trip we had students from Vernon, Salmon Arm, Enderby and Armstrong, as well as a few parents that wanted to experience Italy and Greece.”

Any interested parents and students should contact Britton at PVSS (250-546-3114 ext 206) to find out more details.

Anyone who signs up before Oct. 31 will receive a $150 deduction from the price tag.
