North Okanagan 2020 spring break trip includes cruise

Italy, Greece and a cruise around the Greek Islands on Pleasant Valley Secondary 2020 Euro trip

It will be a spring break overseas next year for area high school students.

The North Okanagan Shuswap School District board has approved Armstrong’s Pleasant Valley Secondary School Italy Greece Trip for Spring Break 2020.

This is the fourth time PVSS has travelled to Italy and Greece which culminates with a cruise of the Greek Islands.

PVSS career programs coordinator Paul Britton said this trip is, by far, the most popular for students and parents and students seem to want to do this one every second year.

“Last year’s trip to Switzerland, Italy, France and Spain was also very popular but it is the cruise of the Greek Islands that is the selling point to this trip,” saide Britton.
