30 Geography and Biology students have just returned from a 5 day residential field trip to Iceland – the land of ice and fire.
The students enjoyed visiting some of Iceland’s premier attractions. Of particular note was walking behind the thunderous Seljalandsfoss waterfall, trekking across the Sólheimajökull glacier and relaxing in the Blue Lagoon with an algae face mask!
Lower Sixth student Roxy Gadd said ‘the Gullfoss waterfall is the most amazing sight I have ever seen’. While Lower Sixth student Maeve Callaghan commented that ‘there was never a dull moment and the trip had offered great value for money’.
All in all the trip was a great success. Field trips are an excellent way of bringing subjects alive. The departments of Geography and Biology are now considering a visit to South Africa in 2018.
