Holgate Sixth Form Trip to Geneva

On Wednesday 16th November we set off to Geneva on our first sixth form trip to CERN.  After meeting other students from the Trinity School and National Academy (and nipping back for some forgotten passports) , we made it to Luton in good time for our flight.  It was a smooth journey across and, after a short train and tram ride, we were soon settled into the Youth Hostel accommodation. 
 
After breakfast at the Youth Hostel, we hopped on the tram up to CERN for the morning.  We explored the Microcosm Exhibition and Particle Museum to learn about the work that goes on at CERN.  The students and staff left with lots of questions answered but with many more unanswered!  After lunch, we decided to make the most of the sunshine and headed to the lake.  We wandered up to the cathedral in the old town and climbed many steps up the towers.  The views across Geneva and the lake were beautiful!  After a boat trip (or walk for those of us that missed the boat!) in our warm winter coats (Miss Driscoll had promised cold weather), we went in search of ice cream.  Not the easiest challenge in November in Switzerland, but nothing fazes our Physics class!  Energy levels boosted, we went back to the Youth Hostel before dinner.  In the evening, we enjoyed a traditional Swiss meal with less cheese fondue than on previous visits!  With full stomachs, we walked down to the lake before bed to see the lights and show off our pull-up skills at the park.
