Second Year Barcelona Tour 2022

Barcelona Tour 2022

Ballymakenny College intends on offering a European trip next Easter 2022 for our 2nd year students.

It is a trip that we believe will be of great value to our students. As well as deepening friendships, it also creates a sense of community amongst the children. We have run successful trips since 2015 and the feedback from students and parents has always been positive.

Apologies for the late notice. At this time I feel that opportunities for travel may incur further costs if we don't have bookings in place.

We will be travelling with School Tour Company. We have used this company in the past and feel that they tailor our requirements to provide a good value tour for our students.

Parents/Guardians should familiarise themselves with the School Tour Policy of Ballymakenny College available on our website.

For our European trip, we intend to travel to Barcelona, which is both culturally and educationally enriching.

Depart Sunday 10 April 2022 and return on 13th April 2022( Dublin or Belfast Airport).

The estimated cost of this trip is €649, and includes the following: (the cost may change slightly due to numbers availing of the trip.)
