International Students visit Living Coasts and Torquay
13th April 2017
Mrs Palmer and Mr Cole accompanied a group of pupils from our Years 10 and 11 EAL classes to Torquay on the English Riviera. They travelled there by train and then walked along the seafront to Living Coasts.
A lot of marine animals were in this small but interesting Coastal Zoo and Aquarium, which is situated in a fantastic location on the rocky shoreline next to Torquay Harbour.
'The students learnt a lot from several different talks on penguins, puffins, sea birds, otters and seals,' said Mr Cole. 'At the end of the otter feed, we saw them devour a whole mouse in front of our very eyes, but we had been warned a few seconds before! We then enjoyed an al fresco lunch with sea views having some free time on our first visit to Torquay. Finally, we asked local people or visitors for their opinions on Torquay and we met people from London, Manchester and even Canada! A great day was had by all, using our English outside school!'
