The DP1 class goes to Geneva on a school trip to explore science, nature and art
A school trip that includes a visit to the United Nations and a few hours spent alongside the researchers of the CERN Research Center; with the end of the school year quickly approaching, the time has arrived for school trips. The students of our High School will experience a school trip rich with international diplomacy, art and the latest developments in the world of scientific research.
From May 21st to 24th, the students of the Diploma Programme 1 will travel to Geneva and they already have a full agenda. First, a trip to the International School of Geneva, one of the first such schools in Europe, which has an (almost) century-long history. Then, the students will visit the UN headquarters (the most important in Europe) and the CERN Research Center, the center of scientific research that was the birthplace of the World Wide Web and some of the most important discoveries in the field of partical physics.
On Wednesday, the last day of the trip, students will explore the natural and architectural beauty of the Swiss city: the Annecy Castle, the historic residence of the counts of Geneva, which is on the banks of the Annecy River, known as the cleanest lake on the continent.
Shortly afterwards, it will be the MYP4 students’ turn, who will be heading to London.
