St Mary’s geography students travelled to Suffolk for a
three day field trip as part of their preparations for their summer
During their time their students showed tremendous curiosity
and endeavour in two geographical studies. These included identifying the
impacts rural rebranding was having on the local area in Flatford Mill.
On the second day the group travelled to Ipswich to identify and analyse the changes regeneration had on Ipswich since the 1950’s. They showed respect to locals as they considered the ethical implications of their chosen study.
The Geographers had a fantastic time and This experience should give all platform for further success in their studies this year.
Thanks to Mr McAllister, Mrs Rosario and the FSC team for all your help.
