Valuable Enrichment Trips at De Salis
Enrichment trips are valuable to De Salis as they allow students to get outdoors and away from their everyday environment. Three trips were organised for students in Years 9, 10 and 11, making this the third excursion this academic year which encouraged students to embrace the fresh air, learn about the fauna and flora of the countryside in addition to having a lot of fun! Students travelled to Coombe Hill near Wendover in Buckinghamshire and discovered the fun of kite-flying (with varying degrees of success).
The views from the top of Coombe hill were breathtaking, affording a panorama of up to 80 miles and a view over the Prime Minister’s country residence of Chequers. The groups then continued to Tring for a fantastic visit to the Rothschild Natural History Museum where over 60,000 specimens from the animal kingdom have been preserved for display. Students found the visit to be both interesting and educational and look forward to returning in the near future.
