The school trip

School trip

Join us on a school trip to Cardiff on Saturday 13th May.

We will spend the morning in the city centre. For lunch we’ll have a picnic in the park. In the afternoon we will visit the Science and Technology Museum.

Price: £20

Meet in the school car park at 8:00 am. Please arrive on time. We will return to the school at 5:30 pm.



Dear Students,

We hope you can come on our school trip next weekend. Unfortunately, the Science and Technology Museum is closed for building work on Saturday, but we have got tickets for St Fagans National History Museum instead. The good news is that entry is free so the trip will now cost £10 each.

Arrival and departure times are the same.

Mr Stuart Noble

Head Teacher

Yes, sure. I love school trips very much! It's like holidays for me. The last time we went to the Art Museum. We've seen there many beautiful masterpieces of famous artists. Once we went to History Military Museum to observe military vehicles, weapons and solders' clothes. It was very interesting to see all of that. History is very important for to be educated person.

Yes. I enjoy going on a school trips. I went to Nuwara Eliya with my school friends in February last year. First we visited Gergory lake. We had a boats ride. Next we visited Abewela Farm and Haggala Botanical Gardens. In the farm, we saw a lot of cows grazing in the green field. I ran here and there with my friends. We laughed lot. We saw beautiful flowers in the Botanical Gardens. The most beautiful flowers were roses. I took many photos of roses with my friend, Dilshani. I enjoyed creamy yogurt together with my friends during the journey.I hope to go on the next school trip with my frends this year too.

Unfortunately, I am not a schoolchild, so I don't have school trips. I remember, when I went to school, we often had school trips.

I don't have any school trips, almost my classmate parents don't feel safe at this. But when I was 10 (or 11) years old, we went to another school to test the teaching ability of homeroom teachers. We got in the school car, I still remember the weather rained. Just think it is a school trip. : )

I enjoy traveling. Last week, my school organized a trip to Ha Long bay, Quang Ninh city. It was so exciting. If you have time, you can go to Vietnam and travel to Ha Long bay. I hope you'll love my country - Vietnam.

We visited historical places as a school trip, but all I remember is that we enjoyed slaming the pillow over the head each other before hitting the hay!

I love going on school trips, obviously we go on one every year.
We journeyed to a variety of places in our country,
1st grade we went to amusement park, 2nd to a farm, 3rd to a plantation, 4th i really cannot remember,
5th to the hill country and botanical gardens, 6th to galle (which I missed due to fate of sickness), 7th to a resort to have fun and do social games, 8th to a historical place, 9th to another historical place "Dambulla and 10th still awaiting......
They are so epic because one has all their friends and does crazy things that one doesn't expect to.
one never gets tired of them and never EVER fall asleep.
