LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - April 22, 2013) - After launching a nationwide appeal, asking for head teachers to help them in their quest to make flying fun, Monarch Airlines has today announced the three winning schools that have been selected for the day trip of their lives.

A total of six hundred children - two hundred from each school - will have exclusive use of a Monarch aircraft on 24th April 2013, with a range of fun activities in the air and on the ground.

Icknield Community College will depart on the Manchester flight to Verona and will learn the real story of Romeo & Juliet, complemented with an acting lesson during the flight.
