Bay of Naples Trip – 2018

The Bay of Naples Trip 2018 was a rip-roaring success combining culture, classics and geography with good humour, enjoyment and a liberal sprinkling of kindness and fortitude in adversity.

The Year 9, 10, 11 & 12 students spent six days and five nights in the beautiful setting of the Sorrentine peninsula. The distinctly un-Italian weather that Italy experienced last week led to air and sea turbulence and attraction closures. Herculaneum, Pompeii, Mount Vesuvius, Napoli and Capri were all on the itinerary. The students also completed a treasure hunt around Sorrento, learnt about organic farming methods at a collective farm, and made pizzas from scratch. They will be producing a video log (vlog) for next Wednesday’s lunchtime assembly.

A huge thanks to to Katie Hager-Conroy, Tom Clery and Caroline Géhin for everything that they did to make the trip work.
