Economics and Business & Management trip to Prague
This Lower Sixth study trip got off to a slightly hairy start on Thursday 22 March 2012 when the wheels of the first coach fell off in the middle lane of the M25. The sheared bolt unbelievably found its way into the windscreen of the second coach, but we made our flight nonetheless!
The students were very attentive at their lecture in the first day, despite nearly 12 hours of travelling. On the second day we visited the ultra-modern Skoda plant followed by some fieldwork in Prague old town, before returning for an hour’s tutorial and then dinner in the hotel.
Saturday saw us step back into the much more primitive production of crystal glassware, with furnace and original handmade production and glass cutting, as well as a brewery trip. A lively last night in Prague city centre was followed by a very upbeat tram journey back to the hotel.
Sunday 25 March saw our final visit: an excursion to the Museum of Communism, before some last-minute souvenir hunting before making our way to the airport and home.
The pupils were fantastic and all had a very good time; the only complaint (from them!) was that the trip wasn't long enough!
