BHS’s Fine Arts department plans on going to Orlando, Florida, as an educational trip. The trip will start on March 24 and will end March 19. It is going to be a 22 hour drive until the students will reach their destination: The Florida Hospital.

“At the moment we have four theatre students going but all in all we will be a group of around 150 people”, says theatre teacher Greg Reilly.

Since this is the Fine Arts Trip, the choir and band will perform at the hospital. After that the students will depart to their next destination, Disney’s Hollywood Studios where they will spend the rest of their Sunday.

“It is a unique way to connect with people at your school”, says Sophomore Hailey Schloskey. That is why she decided to go on the school trip to Disney.

The next stop is going to be Epcot on Monday where the band and choir will participate in the Disney’s ‘You’re Instrumental’ Workshop and Disney Sings Workshop.
