If you are a Yr10, 11, 12 or 13 geographer, you will already know about the fantastic opportunity that is the proposed Geography visit to Switzerland in summer...

We will be leaving school on the 29th July (returning on the 4th August) and travelling by coach (and ferry!) to Les Mosses, a beautiful little hamlet in the heart of the Alps.

The itinerary will be finalised once we have confirmed the booking, but it will include a wide variety of physical and human geography - avalanches, tourism, glaciers, mountains, the cheese and chocolate industries... The photos below (of Les Diablerets, the Aiguille du Midi cable car and the famous Mer de Glace) were taken by Val Vannet from the High School of Dundee when she took some of her students on a similar visit a few years back.

The cost of the visit will be approximately £550 (this will be confirmed once the itinerary is confirmed), and if you want to come, you need to get a deposit of £40 (cash is fine, or a cheque payable to Swanwick Hall School) and a parental consent slip to me as soon as possible...

If you have any questions, need more information, or didn't get a letter, come and see me in Humanities as soon as possible.
