Year 8 Geography students visit The Eden Project

A fantastic group of 97 Year 8 Geographers took up the exciting opportunity offered by the geography department of visiting The Eden Project in Cornwall.

In high spirits, the group arrived and attended a fascinating talk about the history and development of the Eden Project. Students learnt how this incredible place was transformed from an exhausted steep-sided clay pit, into the rainforest and Mediterranean biomes we see today.

Following the talk, the students explored the biomes, where they encountered over 1000 different plant species! Students learnt about the unique ways plants have adapted to live in extreme environments, understanding the importance of the tropical rainforest and how we can play our part in protecting them for future generations.

The group behaved impeccably and were a credit to the school.
