On Wednesday, 14th April, students in the 8th and 11th grades travelled from St. John's to Angel Island in the San Francisco Bay, to visit the immigration center formerly active there, as part of their studies in US History.

The immigration / detention center on Angel Island was the primary entry point for immigrants from Asia during late 19th early 20th cent. The island is now a State Park and historic site. Further information is available here.

During their visit, St. John's students also took a long hike through the hills and beautiful scenery, enjoying a bright day with views across to the City.

A full gallery of photographs from the day is available in our Photo Albums area. Click here for access!
