The [mis]Adventure Of A High School Chaperon
Semiahmoo Secondary Fine Arts British Tour - 2001
by J. A. Sedler
“Wait… you want me to chaperon… London? Like… in charge of high school kids in another country… London?”
Who would have thought that a simple act of getting volunteer hours for a teacher's degree would soon lead to flying across the ocean for an 11 day tour with 20 high school girls in tow? While on the tour, some things went as planned... others did not.
Follow along as Sedler, the other adults & the girls bounce around Britain. First, the city of London, England. From Big Ben and Tower Bridge to the British Museum and the Globe Theatre - seeing all the sights, watching the plays and livin' the life.
Next, come visit the City of York - pop in the York Minster, take a walk on a ghost tour, and enjoy some general time off.
Lastly, wander through the streets of Edinburgh, Scotland. Take a tour of the National Galleries of Scotland, visit Edinburgh Castle and the Hollyroodhouse, and spend a final night in Europe.
Written in a time-lapse report and full of photos, Sedler makes a school trip one to remember.
