An Announcement

Having kept quiet about the whole expedition thing over the summer, I decided that I had to announce the whole project and get the involvement of staff and students in this great project. In order to make a big impact I had borrowed Steve's Antarctic gear and gave an assembly fully kitted out and so, until I had removed a few items, completely unrecognizable. The impact was very gratifying and the children showed enormous interest and enthusiasm. I was even able to say that I might actually be going to Antarctica and that I would know in just a month from now.

Helen Loughran had thoughtfully contacted the local paper, the Mercury, and they came and took some pictures and ran a nice piece in this week's paper.
