Time is running out to get your money and permission slips in for the Switzerland trip in Summer 2010. We will be leaving school on Monday 26th July, and returning on Sunday 1st August, and the trip is open to geographers currently in Years 10-13. Travel will be by coach, and we'll be staying at the Hotel Le Relais Alpin, in the village of Les Mosses. Excursions during the week will include cheese and chocolate factories, thermal baths and Chamonix and the Mer de Glace. The cost of the trip will be confirmed once the itinerary has been finalised, but will not be more than £600.

The photos below show Les Diablerets and the Mer de Glace, and were taken by Val Vannet when she took a group from the High School of Dundee on this trip a couple of years ago.

If you want to come on the trip, you need to get your permission slip and a £40 deposit to me as soon as possible. If you didn't get a letter, or you've lost yours, come and see me for a new one.

It promises to be an excellent trip - make sure that you don't miss out!!

Well done to Tanith who spotted a penguin last Saturday morning...

None about this morning, but a fair few seals on the beach...
