Easter trips for Colfe’s pupils

The Easter break was a busy time for Colfeians with over 120 pupils enjoying residential trips across Europe. Geographers from Years 8-10 went on a unique educational visit to The Azores, whilst pupils from both the Junior School and Senior School skied in Serre Chevalier, France.

Highlights of the Azores trip included whale watching, swimming in geothermal pools, hiking through a tropical forest to learn about the island produces its own HEP energy and visits to a tea plantation and a pineapple plantation. This fascinating three-day trip ended with lava tubing – walking through the tunnels left by the lava from the volcano.

Elsbeth Green (Y9) said of the trip “I have never been anywhere quite like The Azores before and I got the chance to see some amazing geographical features. Whilst whale watching we saw a pod of around 100 dolphins, who swam very close to our boat. After this magical experience, we travelled to see three Fin whales – the second largest mammal on earth. It was a fantastic trip.”
