Cromwell staff and students visit New York for half-term
IT’S the concrete jungle where dreams are made - and provided the trip of a lifetime for students and staff at a Fenland school.
The 62 students and 11 staff from Cromwell Community College, Chatteris, enjoyed a four-day trip to New York for their half-term break.
Among the sights visited were the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, the 911 Memorial and the American Museum of History. They experienced the spectacular views of the Empire State Building at night and enjoyed a walk across Brooklyn Bridge.
A stroll around Central Park, a three-hour boat cruise around Manhattan and, of course, a trip to the shops and some of New York’s famous restaurants were also included in trip.
Jackie Harding, Cromwell’s resource centre manager, said: “Over the four days the students walked about 35 miles and their behaviour was absolutely exemplary at all times.
