Uxbridge Business Park Visit 15/11/19
Students at De Salis were given the opportunity to visit Uxbridge Business Park on Tuesday 12th November. During their visit to the park, students were given a tour of the wildlife across all 77 acres of land, being able to see first-hand each animal in its natural habitat, including the swans that filled their lakes. The main focus was on the bees and the beehives that were on site; students watched as the worker bees produced and stored honey in their honeycomb cells. Everyone was given the opportunity to try fresh honey made at the park. From this valuable experience, students gained knowledge on how to create a natural environment for wildlife to prosper, enabling them to help save many species, big and small, from extinction. The visit proved to be a very eye-opening experience for all who attended, creating fantastic links for work in the future.
During their break, the students were given the opportunity to use some of the on-site facilities, provided for staff to promote a healthy work life balance. Table tennis seemed to be the sport of choice as students battled against each other using their built up excitement and energy.
