GWCS SPRING BREAK 2019
As our world becomes increasingly interconnected, it is critical for our students to be more culturally aware and globally-minded. For this and many other reasons, GWCS organizes an international trip each year to enable students to experience the global classroom first-hand and see with their own eyes what they have been studying in their classes. These trips have the potential to be life-changing for students – they return home with new perspectives, not only about themselves but about the world around them.
This year, GWCS students and parents are invited to join Mr. Torres on a wonderful educational tour of Panama during Spring Break 2019. The tour will include:
Visiting the Panama Viejo ruins/museum and a local pineapple farm
Hiking in El Valle de Anton
Taking a boat tour of Gatun Lake and Monkey Island
A snorkeling adventure, canoe ride, and plenty of other experiences where students can have a lot of fun and learn at the same time.
Discover Panama includes visits to well-known local sites; however, at its core it is much more than that – it is a cross-cultural immersion experience. Immersing oneself in the local culture and becoming better acquainted with another country’s people, food and language, creates inspirational moments of cross-cultural connection that can’t be listed in itineraries. They only can be experienced.
So what are you waiting for? Let’s Discover Panama!
