Students Explore the Black Forest

Posted on: May 16th 2018

Germain NewsHYear 8 and 9 German students spent a sunny few days in the Black Forest in Germany in April. With amazingly good weather, they enjoyed exploring the sights that the area has to offer and spent a lot of time enjoying the outdoors. After a very long bus journey, the first day was spent in the beautiful town of Esslingen, with a tour from pupils from our German partner school and an opportunity to practice buying ice creams in German! The second day saw many of us face our fears with a trip on the Schaunisland cable car, which took us to 1284m above sea level on the longest loop cable car in Germany. The panoramic scenery was spectacular. We enjoyed lunch by the picturesque Lake Titisee and spent the afternoon exploring the huge waterfall in Triberg and learning more about the history of life in the Black Forest. Our final day in the sun involved a trip to Europapark where we explored the different countries of Europe and braved some huge roller coasters! All in all, a fabulous trip made all the more enjoyable by the wonderful students we took with us.

Amery Hill Prom - sunshine, sparkles and sophistication

Amery Hill’s Year 11 students celebrated the end of their secondary school education with a sophisticated dinner and dance at Froyle Park, Upper Froyle. Everything was perfectly in place from the suits and the bow ties, the beautifully elegant dresses to the handbags, the heels and the make-up! Talking about the event, Progress Leader, Mr Owain Lewis, commented “The arrangements for the evening were led by the Student Prom Committee, who organised the event like a team of professionals! Having worked so hard over the past few months for their GCSE exams, it was lovely that the students could celebrate together. They had a fantastic evening and it is definitely one they will remember.” The evening opened with an impressive array of transport for the traditional arrival at Amery Hill School, including a fantastic display of vintage vehicles, a variety of sports cars and even a tractor, a doughnut-performing Rotax kart and an articulated lorry cab, more commonly used to haul a 44 tonne trailer! The fly past by a yellow tiger moth biplane seemed coincidental, or was it?   It was wonderful that so many members of the community came out to wish them well and make them feel special for the evening. Tutors and students enjoyed a reception in the wonderful surroundings of Froyle Park before sitting down to dinner which was followed by the presentation of awards and speeches. The evening was rounded off at Froyle Park with plenty of photo opportunities and dancing.   To view the photos from the evening click here If students would like electronic copies of their own photos please contact Mrs Rose in the ICT Department.View Article
