Year 10 Trip : Pembrokeshire

On Thursday 22nd of September a group of Year 10 GCSE Skills Challenge students embarked on a journey to the West Coast of Wales, to the idyllic countryside of distant Pembrokeshire with Mr Edwards, Miss Begum, Mr O’Brien and Dr Penny.

At the edge of this Welsh world, at Martin’s Haven, two Rangers guided staff and students along the coast, around the cliff edges and through the fern and bracken brushes that make up this point. Students took pictures and had the chance to observe the seals from both afar and close-up using the binoculars provided, especially trying to spot the difference between a rock and a baby seal.  

The Rangers showed us how unique the water was around this coast, explained how microplastics had infiltrated the water systems and how they were tasked with maintaining the quality of the water to preserve the natural beauty and ecosystems of this haven - haven meaning heaven or safe place: a sanctuary of sorts.

While not as glamorous as other trips, this one to Skomer Marine Conservation Zone proved enjoyable, engaging and educational for staff and students alike.

We hope to return next year – hopefully with better weather!
