In order to dedicate ourselves to our commitments in community, we try to keep personal travel to the recess and summer periods. The pattern of community life continues during those times for those remaining in Halton.
If you are planing to follow the internship track, please don’t make any specific plans for the breaks until this has been discussed with your placement organisation. If you are on placement in a church, and depending on the nature of your project, Christmas and Easter may be particularly busy periods, requiring you to take any time away at alternative times.
