To travel overseas and discover the world is something only some students can dream of but at Forbes High School 12 students seized the opportunity to take part in the G’Day USA school program during the summer holidays.
The 20 day program saw students land in Los Angeles and fly out of San Francisco and for Year 12 student, Konnor Ryan it was an opportunity not to be missed. “The trip was fantastic. I had such a great time and seeing parts of America was really a great experience.”
The G’Day USA program provides students with the opportunity to travel to the USA during the Australian school holidays.
Students travel as part of a supervised group with a teacher acting as the group leader. The program is available to students from 14 to 18 years. Students who took part in the program from Forbes High School included Tyrone Clothier, Jessica Ashcroft, Georgia Palazzi, Montana Palazzi, Ethan Markwort, Wally Campbell, Jade Carpenter, Gabrielle Boland Kelly, Fiona Howarth, Kristian Markwort, Tyler Murphy and Konnor Ryan.
“Providing opportunities that help to enrich our students learning and provide a better quality of life is something we strive to do at Forbes High School. The G’Day USA program is something we take part in every 18 months to provide our students with the opportunity to broaden their horizons and see other parts of the world in which we live,” said Relieving Principal Jason Nottingham.
The G’Day USA Program also provides students with the opportunity to live with an American host family for ten days and experience daily life in the United States of America. The tour itinerary also includes four fun-filled days in Los Angeles and three days exploring scenic San Francisco, with a plethora of great activities and landmarks in America for students to participate in and see.
