Droitwich Spa High students get insight into the UN during Geneva trip

Droitwich Editorial 23rd Mar, 2020

STUDENTS from Droitwich Spa High School and Sixth-Form were given an insight into the work of the United Nations during a visit to Geneva, writes Caprice Harrison.

During the trip the 21 A-level pupils were able to sit in on a conference discussing human rights.

And later on they were able to explore the city of Geneva, enjoyed a lake cruise, visited a cathedral, saw a view of Lord Byron’s house and tried their hand at blowing an Alpine horn.

On the last day, the school took a visit to CERN, it gave the pupils a further understanding into the particles of physics.

Head of physics Alison Thompson said: “It was a privilege to take our fantastic students to CERN, they truly were ambassadors for the school, always being polite and interested.

“It is so important for students to see the practical application of what they learn at A-level and where better than the place that is at the very cutting edge of international research?”
