Five pupils in Years 10 and 11 went on a bursary funded trip to Iceland, in partnership with Discover The World and the Geographical Association.
The trip, which aimed to bring the geography tectonic hazards topic to life, provided pupils with the opportunity to go caving in the lava tunnels, see one of the largest waterfalls in the world, the Gullfoss waterfall, and experience standing on a Mid-Atlantic Ridge which is between two tectonic plates moving 4cm apart each year.
“I thought the views in Iceland were incredible and I learnt a lot from the trip. We visited one of the largest waterfalls in Iceland … I was in awe as I had never seen anything like it.” – Safia Lees, Year 11 pupil.
The trip, which hoped to educate and inspire pupils to appreciate the natural beauty and spectacle of Iceland’s natural phenomena, was put on by Discover The World, an award-winning company that offer tailor made school trips and resources.
“I feel very privileged to have been given the opportunity to go on this trip. Iceland brought many wonders and I experienced some things which will stick by me for the rest of my life. The sights, scenery and landscape were overwhelming.” – Rasi Mizori, Year 11.
The immersive visit meant their classroom experiences have been brought to life, helping them prepare for their upcoming GCSE’s.
“The pupils were exemplary and embodied the Carr Manor Community School spirit on the visit.” – Mr Nock, geography teacher.
