California Dreaming


As this goes to print, 16 students and 3 teachers are over in California, USA participating in the 2014 California Wine Tourism Study Tour. They will be visiting famous tourist attractions including Disneyland, Universal Studios, Alcatraz, Yosemite National Park and the Napa Valley but they are also visiting 6 schools and participating in daily American school activities. A presentation titled “A day in the life of a Stanthorpe State High School student” is being delivered to every school and they plan to teach students how to play the very Australian game of Cricket as they have packed beach cricket sets as gifts! The schools visited are based in the agricultural areas of California including Bakersfield, Hilma, Galt, Mariposa, Fowler and St Helena. All students are very excited about the opportunity to learn about a new country, meet new people and participate in new experiences all based around agriculture and tourism. More stories will be forthcoming upon their return.
