Weekly Wrap Up (October 21 – October 25)

This week concluded with our Week Without Walls trip with Dragonfly to Sai Kung, Hong Kong. After extensive preparation, students were safely whisked through both borders and then enjoyed beautiful weather and various team building and outdoor activities! These included a hike through a mangrove forest, animal and plant species identification, and kayaking!

Students were also able to identify some real-life examples of weathering and erosion in action. There were examples of root wedging, chemical erosion, and water erosion. On Friday afternoon, everyone arrived back at school exhausted but happy. We hope everyone was able to relax and recuperate over the weekend!
