The Big Trip to the Big Apple!

Enhancement week at Notre Dame is one of the most exciting times of the year, especially for those students who wing their way across the Atlantic to spend four fun-packed days in the city that never sleeps. This year, twelve students took part in the New York trip, which featured a number of activities for them to enjoy.
One of the most popular evenings was spent taking in the razzle dazzle of a Broadway show, and this year the students were very lucky to be in the audience for ‘Matilda’, the musical based on the Roald Dahl classic. A visit to New York would not be complete without seeing the Statue of Liberty close-up, so the students boarded the Staten Island ferry and spent several hours exploring and photographing the famous monument. A more reflective activity involved a visit to the 9/11 memorial before the Notre Dame visitors went to the top of the Rockefeller Centre to absorb the views of the city. A few shopping trips were also built in to the itinerary!
Helen Ince, a member of staff who accompanied and helped to organise the trip said, “All the students gelled as a group and were so lively and entertaining. They really were a credit to Notre Dame.”
Any students who are interested in going to New York in 2016 should see either Ms Wylie or Miss Ince.
