MODERN LANGUAGES STUDENTS
2004 TRIP TO ECUADOR

In June, 2004 a group of 16 students, 12 of whom were from Vanier College, participated in an exciting trip to Equador led by Vanier Spanish teacher, Francisco Theodosiadis.

This project was part of the ongoing commitment of Modern Languages to introduce their students to other cultures and to give them the opportunity to practise their Spanish.

Another important aspect of the trip was humanitarian as the students visited an orphanage and were able to work with the children there.

The trip began on June 28th and ended on July 12th. Other cities visited included Guayaquil, Cuenca, Quito, Otavalo and Esmeraldas. Altogether the students were in Equador for 15 days.

The students particularly appreciated the opportunity to experience new cultural contacts with a different lifestyle and to participate in humanitarian activities. The students were unanimous in their praise of the trip and of the superb job of Francisco in ensuring the trip’s success.

Have a look at some photos taken during this memorable trip.
