One of the highlights of the year for our Year 6 boys is their Flight excursion to Coldstream airport.
Having spent a term studying the Principles of Flight, researching famous aviators, listening to presentations from those with careers in aviation, and making an efficient and effective Balsa Wood plane, the opportunity to actually fly a plane is grasped with great enthusiasm, some trepidation and ultimately, wonderful resilience.
After group instruction and a close up inspection of the planes, each boy then climbs aboard a Piper Warrior Plane, buckles up and under the tutorage of a qualified instructor, heads off into the wild blue yonder.
Every boy breathlessly describes the experience as one of their most memorable, and for many, it serves as the catalyst for future pursuits.
