Year 4 Geography Trip to Switzerland 2018
On June 27th some 70 Year 4 students travelled with their Geography teachers to the country of Switzerland.
The snow was the perfect antidote to the rising heat of the Cyprus summer. The Valais area they travelled to is the most scenic area of the Alps with many mountains over 4000 metres, including the iconic Matterhorn. Students daily ascended mountains by cable car and saw first hand how glaciers were being affected by climate change, including the UNESCO world heritage site Aletsch glacier the largest glacier in Europe. The week included daily lessons on data collection and the interpretation of fieldwork result as part of their Geography IGCSE studies.
