Focus Europe is the line for you who want to get to know and experience the best Europe has to offer. Sights, history, young people in Europe and cultural differences. We go on interrail.

This year you will get to know our own continent Europe better!

Focus on European history and culture

We learn about and discuss historical retrospectives and current challenges facing Europe

We get to know each other well and form friendships through varied and social activities

We choose an aid project that we work on ahead of the trip, and which we can visit on the trip

There will be a good mix between theory and practice

Interrail and island hopping: The destinations vary from year to year. In 23/24 we are going to Denmark, Germany, Austria, Italy, Slovenia and Croatia.Later, we will take the Orient Express which will end in Istanbul.

Together we will plan our own European adventure!

We will travel by public transport- something that is better for the environment and will enrich us with impressions and experiences along the way

Knowledge of our destination

Travel planning

You will experience and see the great contrasts

We will meet people who dream of a better future

And we will enjoy  days on the beach or snorkelling in the azure blue sea

Da vi har spennende utenlandsturer på begge linjene du som elev går på, har vi valgt å legge fellesturene til vakre og spennende omgivelser i Norden.
Foruten flere felles skoleturer setter vi også av tid til fellesarrangementer som:

  • konserter,
  • kinoforestillinger
  • seminar
  • foredrag utenfor skolens område. 

Mandatory: Yes

Price: 7 000

Foruten alle skolens linjeturer til innland- og utland ser vi for oss en felles skoletur til Preikestolen og Stavanger. Skolen ønsker også at våre elever får delta på lokale kulturelle arrangement i skolens nærmiljø, dvs på Haugalandet. Dette er feks spennende konserter, kinoforestillinger, teater mm.
