The Geography Department finally made it to Iceland on our long awaited, COVID disrupted trip during the Easter holidays. The experience exceeded the expectations of the staff and students who went. They witnessed some truly breath-taking sights across a jam-packed 4 days. Here is a selection of the MANY photos that the students took, showing the amazing scenery and the good fun that was had!
What a truly amazing trip! When asked, there were lots of highlights that the Geographers suggested, but the glacier walk came up most often. The “Viking Protein Drink” at the ice cream farm perhaps didn’t score so well, but that meant more for me! The Blue Lagoon seems to have been the perfect way for everyone to end their trip too.
A massive thank you to Mrs Singleton for all her organisational skills. Thank you also to Mr Ward, Miss Garlick and Miss Starkey for their help and brilliant company, Mrs Honeyman for being base contact and giving loads of useful advice, the staff at Rayburn for putting on such a great itinerary, the family team at our accommodation (including the dogs!) and to our awesome coach driver, Baddi! A massive thank you also goes from me directly to the students; each and everyone of them was a superstar. They were kind, helpful, polite, enthusiastic and up for some fun. I really enjoyed sharing Iceland with you all.
The 2025 trip is in the planning stages already, so current Year 8 and 9, look out for details coming soon!
