Iceland Megatour 2016

P1090190 250pxThis term Geographers have been out and about studying a range of topics in the field.
Firstly Year 10 students travelled to the tertiary coast between Reculver & Herne Bay - to investigate the various coastal management techniques for their GCSE coursework. For their IB Internal Assessment the Year 12 Geographers undertook a residential trip to Surrey – in order to investigate the fluvial dynamics of the River Tillingbourne.
Finally, 22 students from Year 11 took part in a residential trip to the country of Iceland.  They were thoroughly immersed in the islands unique physical geography – a land of tectonic and glacial wonders. During the 6 day trip students;
  • wiggled through lava tubes
  • walked down a mid-Atlantic ridge fissure
  • trekked around & behind a range of majestic waterfalls
  • hiked upon a glacier armed with crampons and axes
  • marvelled at columnar basalt formations & black sand beaches
  • travelled to the top of a glacier in an ex-army rocket launcher.
  • observed puffins loaded with fish, returning from the sea  to their nests high in the cliffs
  • enjoyed a boat trip around the icebergs of a glacial lagoon
  • witnessed humpback whales breaching and fluking
  • relaxed in the geo-thermal waters of the Blue Lagoon
It was an awe-inspiring trip which further enhanced the students’ love of Geography and many are keen to visit this fantastic country again.

French school visit

IMG 4423 250pxOn 22 June 2016, 8B and 8N were graced with a visit from their French pen pals. Le Collège Marguerite Duras is located in Montélimar in the south of France. We spent the morning giving them tours around the school and getting to know each other. The pupils talked to each other in various languages and we learned rules and customs from each other's schools such as if their teacher is ill, they do not have a lesson. Also, they are not allowed to be seen or heard using their phones on school grounds, regardless of the times. In the afternoon we played fun games with the help of the P.E and language teachers and then played kickball rounders. After school, some of us joined the French pen pals on a trip to Broadstairs beach. We had a lot of fun running in the sea and playing ball games. One of the French teachers bought us all an ice cream! Sadly we all had to leave but I hope to keep in touch with my pen pal via email as do many others.
