'Fire and Ice' Visit to the amazing country of Iceland
During the Easter Holidays, twenty four Year 13 students had the opportunity to visit Iceland.
Situated just a mere 846 miles from the UK it is the only place in the world where you can see the boundary between two tectonic plates and see an array of volcanic activity in action. From the erupting geysers to the fierce waters of Gullfoss, every day provided another outstanding opportunity to witness the natural wonder of our world in action.
Both the students and staff had a great time, especially lazing around in the geothermal hot springs in the Blue Lagoon and walking the world famous solheimajokull glacier. This glacier is vastly retreating so it really was a case of see it before it’s gone!
The students were fantastic on the visit and Miss Burton and Mr Dobson would like to thank them for making the visit such an enjoyable experience.
