Our youngest Seniors spent a sunny day in Dover finding out more about the English coast.
Geography classmates from Years seven and eight followed the coastal path on a round trip from the seafront to St. Margaret’s Bay, taking in the sights over the bay.
They saw first-hand the uses of the coast including the Port of Dover, Europe’s busiest ferry port, and features such as erosion and coastal defence.
During the cliff-top trail, the Gad’s contingent enjoyed lunch on the shingle beach with special guest, Bugsy, Mrs Robert’s pet pooch.
The fact-finding day was especially timely as the students will be studying coasts next term and was made even better by the beautiful weather, and ice-creams all round!
Well done to quick-thinking Mrs Burke, who organised the trip after a pre-booked pond-dipping visit to Lullingstone Contry Park was cancelled the day before.
