Worcester Sixth Form College Geology & Geography Students visit Iceland
Worcester Sixth Form College students of Geology and Geography A2 recently had another successful fieldtrip to Iceland. The highlights of the trip included the opportunity to see a fantastic northern lights show, a glacier walk on Solheimajokull glacier with a tour through an ice tunnel and the opportunity to climb the Eldfell volcano on the Westman Islands.
One of the students said: "One of the best experiences of my life! The northern lights were amazing" and "the best part was learning about the geographical and geological processes everywhere we went".
Karen Southall, Teacher of Geography at Worcester Sixth Form College, said: “It was a pleasure to take such a great bunch of students to Iceland and watch their geographical knowledge and enthusiasm develop. Icelanders including the hotel manager and the bus driver commented on how polite and courteous the students were.”
