A brief encounter with a school group while on holidays on the other side of the world has quickly turned into a maiden trip for staff and students of Portland Secondary College.Three staff and 30 students will embark on an 18-day trip across Italy, taking in the sights of the Colosseum, Pantheon and Florence Cathedral from this Friday.The idea came after teacher Andy Harris visited Italy."I previously went to Italy and I saw lots of school groups," Mr Harris said."It’s such a rich place and I wanted to share that with kids in Portland."Mr Harris hopes the trip gives the students a better understanding of ancient cultures."This will only enrich their education. When it comes to a time when they have to write about the region, they will have first-hand experience of that subject."For students Jemma Farrell and Bailey Knight, both 16, the idea of visiting a foreign country is exciting."I’m very keen to visit Venice, Rome and Florence," Jemma said."I like the Roman structures. It’s a great way to immerse myself in where it all started," Bailey added.
