On Tuesday our Year 9 students embarked on an enriching and sunny journey to Kew Gardens, where they immersed themselves in a day of artistic exploration and natural discovery. With sketchbooks and pencils in hand, our budding artists found inspiration in the remarkable diversity of flora that Kew is renowned for. From the intricate details of delicate petals to the towering majesty of exotic trees, they diligently sketched their observations. We also took many photos to capture the mesmerising beauty of the gardens, which will serve as reference images for our upcoming paintings back in school.
Kew Gardens is renowned for its collection of rare and exotic plants, and our students had the privilege of admiring these botanical treasures up close. From the resplendent orchids in the Princess of Wales Conservatory to the towering grandeur of the steamy Palm House, there was no shortage of awe-inspiring moments.
We are immensely proud of our Year 9 students for their exemplary behaviour throughout the trip. They demonstrated respect for the gardens and their maturity and understanding of the importance of preserving natural wonders was evident throughout the day.
