Shimna students and staff are having a fantastic time on the History & Politics trip to Washington DC. So far, the itinerary has included visits to the White House, Capitol Hill, the Kennedy Centre, Ford’s Theatre and the American History Museum, as well as the iconic walking tour, including the Washington Monument, the Korean and Vietnam Veterans memorials and the Dr Martin Luther King memorial. The group have also enjoyed a dinner at the Hamilton, hosted by the Northern Ireland Bureau, where they celebrated Isabella Cross’ 16th birthday. On Sunday evening, they watched the titanic tussle between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles in Superbowl LVII. The trip will end with a visit to the Air & Space Museum before the journey home tomorrow.
