Picture Special: Finn Valley College explore Venice, Verona and La Dolce Vita!

first_imgThe resplendent Lake Garda region was the destination of choice this year for 48 students and staff from Finn Valley College, Stranorlar.During the five-day trip the students enjoyed a huge range of attractions, sights and activities of this wonderfully varied part of Italy. Day One brought a visit to the gorgeous city of Verona.With its beautiful piazzas adorned with ancient frescos, the awesome red brick Ponte Vecchio spanning the river Adige and of course, Juliet’s balcony, the students witnessed at first hand why Verona attracts millions of tourists year after year. There was still time to make their way towards Onepio winery for an early evening tour of the vineyard and an interesting talk on the winemaking process before checking into home for the week, the Hotel Azzurra in Sirmione.Day Two saw another gloriously sunny day with the students enjoying a scenic drive along the lake before stopping in the picturesque medieval walled town of Lazise with its local artisan markets and the customary gelato!Later came a visit to the El Bacan farm and restaurant where everyone sampled the large variety of locally produced products before engaging in a spot of pizza making. Friendly hosts Luciano and his family then led a tour of their farm, which is known for producing peaches, apricots, kiwis, apples, pears and grapes.The traditional students and teacher bowling competitions then took place in a local bowling alley before another jam packed day was brought to a close with a lively sing-along bus journey back to the hotel followed by a table quiz including music and Italy themed rounds before bed in anticipation of a trip to Venice in the morning! On the way to Venice the students were able to take in the cultural scenery that surrounds the rolling fields of Italy while listening to the many DJ’s aboard who had taken on the role.With a scenic boat trip over to the Adriatic surrounded city the students made their way to the famous St. Mark’s square, where they met tour guide for the day, Gulia.After taking in all the sights of the truly unique island including the Rialto Bridge and Grand Canal, the students made a trip to visit the Vecchia Murano glass-making factory. The students then finished off their day with a relaxing gondola ride around the watery streets of Venice.Day four started with a cable car ride up into the dizzy heights of Monte Baldo, a stunning snow capped mountain surrounded by the beautiful panoramic scenery of the Alps.Returning from the snow and back down into the sunshine, the group travelled to the picturesque town of Garda to enjoy a short walk around and explore the town which the Lake was named after. Students and staff then made their way to the Jungle Adventure Park and took to the heights again to test their strength and agility in a series of challenging obstacle courses.After these high wire exploits, the tired students and some amazingly refreshed looking staff boarded the bus again for our lovely driver Marco to take us to yet another picture postcard town on the shores of Lake Garda- Bardolino. The contented group walked along the tranquil waters of the lake to sample yet another version of the most delicious gelato and some photos.The final day on tour took the group into Sirmione, a jewel of a town, which juts out into the lake and is famous for its medieval castle and natural spas. After some free time the students were treated to a very informative guided boat ride around the narrow peninsula with views of the town and its Roman ruins dating back to 200BC.There was just time for one final trip back into Bella Verona for some shopping en route to the airport. The journey was shortened somewhat and the mood of the departing students lifted with the presentation of the annual school tour awards. The final word on tour was left to tour leader, Ms Boland who thanked all the students for their excellent behaviour on what was a truly excellent tour that had everything. Ciao and Grazie Lago di Garda. Viva Italia. La Dolce Vita indeed.Students on tour: Maddison White, Molly Browne, Lauren O Donnell, Thomas Gallen, Ivija Kuske, Julia Koperska, Grainne Mc Elchar, Savannah Molyneux, Paul Doherty, Aaron Mc Inulty, Brian Mc Bride, Emma Irwin, Dillon Murphy, Dina Patton, Meghan Walden, Tisha Merritt, Eoin O Donnell, Marie Donaghey, Anne Mc Laughlin, Chloe Harris, Cameron Potts, Patricia O Brien, Aivis Maslovskis, Jade Logue, Truda Mc Daid, Aine Foy-Hayton, Reece Mc Gahern, Anthony Anderson, Dylon Mc Clean, Aaron Duffy, Cathal Moss, Kelsey Mc Clintock, Rosita Birbalaite, Tara Boyle, Leah Mc Brearty, Declan Lynch, Stephen Carlin, Carla Mc Gee, Oaran Mc Gurk, Calvin O Brien and Conor Scanlon.Report by Dina Patton, Aine Foy-Hayton and Rory White.A 4th year group (and Finn!) pose for a pic in Malcesine near the top of the lakeA wonderful shot of a laughing bunch of students taken at the old port in Lazise on the shores of Lake GardaAnne, Stephen, Conor, Oaran and Calvin pictured on their gondola ride around VeniceDina, Ivija and Tisha outside the old Medieval walled-town of LaziseGroup pictured on Palm Sunday in front of St Mark’s Basillica, VeniceMeghan, Truda and Anthony hang tough during the Zip-lining in San Zeno di MontagnaOur tour mascot ‘Finn’ pictured in front of the castle at SirmionePLC students Carla, Tara, Reece and Rosita pictured at Juliet’s BalconyThe group making their merry way across the Ponte Vecchio on their way into VeronaThis bunch of ladies strolling through one of Verona’s busy streetsStudents and teachers pictured on top of snow-covered Monte Baldo at the beginning of the AlpsStudents skimming stones as the sun goes down in BardolinoA speedboat full of 4th year students pose for a photo with the ancient Roman ruins on Sirmione in the backgroundPicture Special: Finn Valley College explore Venice, Verona and La Dolce Vita! was last modified: April 1st, 2018 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Finn Valley Collegela dolce vitapicture specialschool tripveniceveronalast_img read more

UPDATE Vancouver resident arrested for shooting killing alleged prowler

first_imgPolice arrested a northeast Vancouver man for shooting and killing an alleged prowler outside his house early Tuesday morning. Vancouver police took a report of suspicious circumstances at 14802 N.E. 33rd St. at 3:53 a.m. Four minutes later, police were called to the same address for a report that the prowler had been shot outside of a residence, said Kim Kapp, Vancouver police spokeswoman. Sean H. Doucette, 27, was later booked into the Clark County Jail on suspicion of second-degree murder. Doucette does not have a criminal record, according to the Washington Courts website. He is expected to make a first appearance in Clark County Superior Court this morning.The identity of the individual shot by Doucette was not available from authorities pending positive identification by the Clark County Medical Examiner’s Office, according to a news release from the Vancouver Police Department.However, KATU-TV reported the man is Iosif Dumitrash, 19, of Portland. Kapp did not say whether the two 911 calls were made by the same person, but she said no one else is being sought in relation to the incident. Tax records show the property is owned by Sean and Rachelle Doucette. Patricia Newstrom works the graveyard shift as a caregiver in a house near the shooting. As she sat drinking coffee on the couch around 4 a.m., she said she heard four loud “booms” of a gun in a row. Soon after, she heard the screeching tires of police cars.last_img read more
