Senior Trip: 3 Days of White-Water Rafting and Canyoning

Tuesday, June 4, 2019

On Monday 27 May, freshly out of their gowns and suits after Prom, 23 Seniors boarded the Shinkansen to the wilderness of Minakami in Gunma prefecture. Accompanied by Ms Takeda and Mr Crespy, they were to spend 3 days between land and water: white-water rafting, canyoning and building their own rafter on a neighboring lake. The trip was a major success! Everything went according to the Trip Committee’s carefully prepared schedule and the fun factor was high, thanks to Londoner instructor Chris. The water was most definitely cool, but the Class of 2019 was cooler, jumping off 20-metre cliffs, sliding down rivers and turning somersaults into the water. The Canyons team made the stay a pleasant, safe one, which finished on a high culinary note with the Canyons Special Burger (you have to taste it to get it!). Here’s to another successful Senior Trip, and we hope that everyone is now readying themselves for Graduation!
