Ski trip - Pila 2013

Lava tubing fun; sledging on top of a glacier which itself was on top of the very active Katla volcano where technique was all important in the need for speed! Giant ice-bergs floating out to sea in gigantic Atlantic waves with seals playing amongst the 'bergs; walking behind waterfalls; ice-walking on glacial snouts; the biggest waterfall in Europe; 'ice candles' hanging from the black cliff gorge that inspired Tolkien; meeting the man that seems to know every Hollywood action movie star there is and has even skied the opening sequence to a James Bond film;

Trip to the Olympic stadium

A group of students chosen from every primary and secondary school in Thanet travelled by coach and when the stadium loomed on the horizon my first thoughts were 'wow! what a wonderful sight'.
