ESB PA Supports the S4 Trip to London

ESB PA Supports the S4 Trip to London

As part of the ESB PA Community Fund, the Parents’ Association supported 2017 School Trip to London. This year students took in the sites via boat trips and saw the Globe, the London Eye and Tower Bridge. They also enjoyed a tour of Oxford which included visiting Balliol college.

The Parents’ Association is proud to help support activities that enhance our students’ overall educational experience. Here are some photos from the trip, courtesy of the teachers and students.

  • The students and teachers of the 2017 S4 London trip would like to say thank you to the Parents' Association for helping us have an excellent experience in the UK.  Several educational experiences were subsidized by the PA Community Fund, and we greatly appreciate the support which helped provide the best possible education experience.

PA Supports ES Bergen Career Guidance Group

PA Supports ES Bergen Career Guidance Group

Internships enhance our students’ educational experience in many ways. The Parents’ Association is supporting the ES Bergen career advisors by helping identify potential employers and contacts at organizations that would consider S5 students for internships. We are also helping identify parent professionals to share their experiences during a career night for S6 parents and students (Fall 2017).

Please help us make an impact on our students’ success by connecting students with opportunities that will shape their future in a meaningful way. If you are interested in either of these opportunities, please contact us.
