Sicily trip 2017

DSC_0968“GCSE Geography students in Years 10 and 11 spent the first week of the Easter holidays on the Geography tour to Sicily. Study sites included Mount Etna, the Alcantara river gorge, the tourist honeypot of Taormina and the Aeolian island of Vulcano. The highlight of the trip was the visit to the southern flank of Etna where, at an altitude of 2,500m, we were able to marvel at the sight of a stream of molten lava flowing down the slope while snow was falling all around.  Mr Latchford commented that this was Etna at its most awesome and the students should feel very privileged to have witnessed such an event.”
