Trip to London
Mr Roopak organised a Summer Day Trip last month for the secondary
pupils of the school to the combined destinations - London Eye, 4D
Theatre, London Dungeon and River Cruise. The pupils left school
around 9:15 and travelled free on London Underground to London
Southbank, and returned back to school by about 18:00 hours. It was a
fun-filled trip yet combined with learning scopes in the fields of
English, History, Architecture, Engineering and Technology.
The trip started with a 40-minute circular boat cruise on River Thames
from London Eye Pier featuring educational commentary from expert
guides on the history and heritage of the famous buildings, monuments
and bridges of the City of London all around. Some of these includes
the Big Ben and Houses of Parliament, St Paul’s Cathedral, Tate Modern
Art Gallery, Tower of London, Millennium Bridge, Waterloo Bridge,
London Bridge and the Tower Bridge.
This was followed by a 30-minute rotation on one of the 32 capsules of
the London Eye – the world’s tallest cantilevered observation wheel,
which gave the pupils a chance to explore London’s skyline while
rotating 135 metres above the River Thames.
The pupils then visited the 4D Cinema Experience to watch a 4-minute
revolutionary 4D film showcasing the rich cultural diversity of the
city which is both emotional and entertaining.
After lunch, the pupils spent sometime in the Arcade inside the County
Hall beside, playing different games and taking rides on the bumping cars.
The final attraction of the trip was a visit to the London Dungeon,
where the pupils went on a 90-minute journey through 1000 years of
London’s murky past, moving through scary rides and shows, guided by
professional actors. It was a fully themed experience, based on real
London history, reflected through 360^o sets, full on authenticity and
