Duchesne Class Trip to London and France Planned for 2024

ST. CHARLES, MO (September 27, 2022) – Duchesne High School is pleased to announce that its students will have the opportunity to participate in a class trip to London and Paris in June 2024.

The trip includes 11 days of travel and tours of London and Paris, exploring deep history and culture at landmarks such as the Tower of London, Canterbury Cathedral, the Louvre and Normandy’s D-Day beaches. Students also have the opportunity to see a show at the Globe Theatre.

The tour is organized by Kim Morris, a Duchesne graduate and 1989 literature teacher, and supported by EF Educational Tours. Morris began putting together details for the tour with the Duchesne administration that spring and her enthusiasm for the project continued to grow after she traveled to London herself over the summer, where she visited some of England’s oldest buildings.
