Icelandic adventure puts schoolgirls in festive spirit

Leamington Editorial 31st Dec, 2017   0

AN ICELANDIC adventure put Leamington schoolgirls firmly in the festive spirit.

Pupils and staff from The Kingsley School went on an action-packed tour around the land of fire and ice courtesy of Discover the World Education.

Author Cathy Harlow accompanied the group as it explored natural wonders from volcanoes and glaciers to hot springs and iceberg lakes.

And the trip was particularly helpful for those studying geography.

Student Natasha Lamyman said: “Visiting Iceland has allowed me to understand the theory behind plate tectonics and glaciation. Icelandic society is fascinating and very community-based.”

Head of Geography Rebecca Rogers called it a ‘humbling experience’ and said it was a real privilege to share it with the pupils.

She added: “Seeing the spectacular Northern Lights, the beautiful iceberg lakes, the enormous waves at Dyrhólaey, and volcanoes like Katla nestling under the icecaps reminded us all of the powerful physical forces driving our planet.”
