Garden Valley Collegiate's art tour to New York will be taking place this Spring Break.

High school students from G.V.C, and possibly some students from Morden, will be flying to "The Big Apple", a.k.a. New York, this spring vacation. Forty-six high school students, including adult supervisors are needed before this tour can take place, and the turn-out is looking very promising.

Marcel Debreuil, an art teacher at G.V.C, will be making the tour possible. "The tour should undoubtedly be a great experience, and probably a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity", comments senior 4 student, Tara F. The total cost will be between $800 and $1,000. This includes transportation, hotels, and meals.

Tour participants will be staying in a downtown hotel on Manhattan Island. According to Debreuil, extreme caution will be taken at all times, as safety is the first priority. Students will have adult supervision, since New York is a dangerous city and they will be doing a lot of walking.

Madison Square Gardens, the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty and Times Square will surely be some highlights of the tour. Other things Debreuil has planned for the students are to attend a fashion show, to go to a Broadway play, visit the Hard Rock Cafe, and possibly attend a taping of David Letterman or Saturday Night Live.

Police will be guiding the tourists through a metro high school and they will also have the opportunity to visit at least one art museum, such as the Metropolitan Art Museum.
