Today the students travelled to Philadelphia which is the largest city in the state of Pennsylvania. Firstly they followed in the footsteps of Rocky Balboa (One of Philadelphia's most recognizable icons) by ascending the steps of the Philadelphia Art Museum and retracing the famous jogging scene through Fairmount Park. They then travelled to South Philly to sample the American institution that is the Philly Cheese Steak, Students sampled cheese steaks from two rival restaurants Pat’s and Geno's and then picked their favorite.
Next was a walking tour of Philadelphia. They saw many sites of historical significance including Independence Hall, The Liberty Bell, Christ Church Philadelphia and the oldest street in the USA.
The students then had some free time to explore the city before going to Dinner at Dave and Buster's which is a restaurant and arcade. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day in Philly and they are all looking forward to what tomorrow will bring.

Day 1: Arrival in Pennsylvania

day 1

They've all arrived safe and sound in Pennsylvania! They landed in Newark and were greeted by their American counterparts. The students from both schools were so excited!!

It was a two hour bus ride from Newark to Royersford, Pennsylvania but as you can imagine, the chatting never stopped!! They arrived at the school and everybody went their separate ways to their new families for the next fortnight!! A great nights sleep is definitely needed!!
