STA Travel Education to send Knightswood School on trip of a lifetime

Date Posted: 30/01/2019

Having been crowned the winning school of STA Travel Education’s ‘win your trip campaign’, Knightswood School in Glasgow are to be awarded £10,000 to jet off on another educational trip.

The school took off to Malawi in September 2018, in support of the Scotland Malawi Partnership which aims to foster further links between both countries.
It was on this trip that the school won over the STA Travel Education Team to become the winners of the £10,000 to be spent on a trip of a lifetime.

About the competition

In order to enter, schools were required to book a trip with the STA Travel Education team, after which group leaders were sent a pre-departure pack containing a beach ball. They were then asked to feature the ball in a creative photo of the group entering, and to share the image on social media.

Speaking of the competition, Ellen Rayner, director of STA Travel, said: “No funny business, we’re just passionate about inspiring the next generation. Travel educates as well as inspires and we want to make school trips a more realistic opportunity for many students.

“A lot of our clients come to us with small budgets and are restricted to domestic travel. We want to make sure one of these groups has the opportunity to realise a new culture, somewhere further-flung.”
