EA school tour newsletter Feb 2013


It’s been a busy couple of months for EA School Tours. Many schools have recently experienced EA’s exciting North America tours during the Christmas and mid term breaks. A popular time for school trips due to competitive airline prices and ideal weather conditions for Orlando based tours. Check out these amazing photos from Guildford Grammar’s trip to space via NASA’s Orlando space centre here!

A major focus for the team here at EA School Tours is making every aspect of a school tour easy and simple for the teachers involved. The team isn’t quite convinced that mobile apps are going to take away all the work from teachers, but we have listed our top recommendations for teachers leading school trips below.

In this newsletter:

5 essential apps for smart teachers

All great travel apps have one thing in common: they all solve a problem you didn’t even realise you had.

Now we all know the success of your school trip hinges on a lot more than the apps on your phone! That said, even the simplest apps can make teachers life on a school tour easier and more relaxing. Apps picked out by teachers as useful or fun for school trips include up to date currency conversion, First Aid Essentials and flight view airport support.

51 lucky Australian boys from Guildford Grammar recently experienced EA’s popular NASA Space Centre Tour in Orlando Florida – The trip was a big hit for both the students and all Teachers involved – with life long memories.

We were very honoured to receive the below comment form their lead teacher when they returned home:

“Once again, thank you to EA and especially to you Eleri for organising this really wonderful tour for our boys and staff. Last year was my 30th year of continuous teaching of secondary science and this tour was probably the highlight, personally for me, in my teaching career!”
