The year 7’s had an amazing time at Ripley’s Believe it or Not seeing an array of unusual and intriguing artwork, artefacts and interactive displays.
It was a very hands-on experience including a chance to put your hands into icy waters below freezing like the survivors of the Titanic, measure yourself against the world’s tallest man and walk through a black hole (fortunately it was only a very dizzying illusion).
Upon asking the children what was their highlight of the trip there was a variety of interesting responses. Several students were fascinated by the simulation of a man in an electric chair being electrocuted for others the best part was tackling challenging mirror and laser mazes.
For all the students and staff involved the trip was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and we all are eagerly awaiting the next Quest Academy day.
