“There are words to describe an experience which is out of the ordinary: awesome, amazing, incredible, inspiring, fantastic, extraordinary, impressive, memorable.
Iceland 2023 encompassed all of these and more. The chance to experience and witness the trip through the eyes of 40 teenagers, is something that cannot be placed into words. The wonderment at the Northern Lights, a retreating glacier, snow on a volcanic beach. These experiences cannot be explained, they can only be felt.
It was an immense privilege to offer, organise and run this trip. Our students were impeccably behaved and conducted themselves in a mature and considerate manner, making the Academy so very proud of them.
To say that the trip was enjoyed by all, staff and students alike, would be an understatement. A most memorable experience.” (Mrs Smerdon – Trip Leader)
