It was a “trip of a life time” for Croton School students on their customised USA Geography Trip this September. ‘Death Valley was incredible. We lasted three minutes in the sand dunes at 51 degrees before one of the teacher’s trainers began to melt.’ The school also spent a night in Las Vagas, visited the grand canyon and had a couple of well-deserved day relaxing at the beach and visiting the theme parks in LA. Check out the full article on Crofton’s trip here.
