from 1 september to talk to the pupils of Special Secondary Education Sint-Franciscus about only one thing: the five-day school trip to Mechelen. In the week from 20 to 24 may want the teacher to an unforgettable week. Inspired by the VRT-program Down The Road organised activities. “We pull a trip to Planckendael,” says Annick Following of BuSO Sint-Franciscus.
We are full of good intentions, but the financial picture must, of course, correct. Down The Road is a great program, but a little unrealistic for us. Distant travel, crazy adventures: it costs a lot of money. Something we want our students also to give, but then there is, of course, money. Even if it was just to enjoy an ice cream on the market of Mechelen. We hope that people us a push in the back to giveAnnick Following
“Thanks to a generous sponsor, we can spend a day engaging behind-the-scenes of the zoo. Our sportleerkrachten will several sporting just a few short moments to organize in the indoor and outdoor swimming pool of The Nekker, where we have the whole week to stay and culinary spoiled. Thanks to the city of Mechelen, we can join a free art trail, which is the entire center crossed. Of course we want the boundaries of our pupils deflection and maximum enjoyment of this unique school.”Financial aspects
But there is a problem: the financial side of the school. Currently, parents must 160 euro deposit. “That is a lot of money,” says Annick. “Can we really not ask. Some children come from families where this is not easy bijeengespaard. If your child comes home with the question of whether 160 euro deposit for the school trip, that is to swallow. Therefore we want to appeal to volunteers and sponsors.”
