Surf Trip to Morocco
Staff and students from Richard Huish College travelled to Morocco last month to take part in the College’s biannual surf trip. The trip, now in its fourth year, invites students to experience a completely different culture to what they are used to.
Though primarily a surf trip, the trip is designed to open students’ minds to new and different experiences and to hopefully give students a better perspective of the world. Staying on the coast near Agadir, the group were hosted by Moroccan Surf Adventures, who provided expert surf instructors and guides.
As well as surfing the students and staff made sure to take in all Morocco has to offer, visiting Paradise Valley and a traditional souk in Agadir and even getting the opportunity to ride camels.
The trip was open to all students at the College as a part of the Travel Enrichment scheme. This summer a group of Huish students will also travel to Sri Lanka to take part in the College’s annual volunteer programme, where they will work with the Foundation of Goodness charity. The charity focuses on rural development through female education, empowerment and sports. Whilst there students will teach English and coach sports to local children as well as working with the elderly.
Huish prides itself and its extensive list of different enrichments, which along with travel also includes music, sport and performing arts opportunities amongst many others. If you would like more information on what other enrichments the College has to offer please visit our website or join us for our Open Event on March 5th.
