Here are their thoughts on the day:
Sophie “At the beginning of the trip, we expected it to be quite awkward and we were nervous about the day. However, the calm atmosphere and welcoming community helped us settle in, we almost forgot it was a school trip and were free to express our opinions. It was a great experience as you could express your beliefs and at the same time be open to others’ ideas.”
Madison “‘It was a great welcoming environment with no pressure and I was valued for myself and was able to express my views.”
Ben “My favourite moment of the day was embracing the opportunity to debate using my thoughts and ideas.”
