What teachers say
“It was amazing. The children (and staff!) loved it. We are already discussing making it a regular trip every year.”
“By 3:30 this afternoon I had a queue of staff wanting to tell me how great the visit was. The students were bowled over by their experiences today. They thoroughly enjoyed themselves and there was a real buzz when they returned to school. Thank you so much.”
“In their words they had ‘the best day everrrrrr. It couldn't have been improved!”
“We were outside for most of the day, seeing and learning about things, animals and habitats that the children wouldn't have the chance to see day to day. The staff really helped make the day worthwhile. A great experience for the children.”
“The wetlands offers fantastic workshops with experiences that cannot be replicated in schools. It is a diverse place with many different things to see, do and learn.”
“We would just like to say a big thank you. On our return to school, the children said it was the best day they’d ever had and they asked if we can go there every day.”
“This is definitely the best school trip I have ever taken a group of children on.”
