Diss High School students sample sun, sand and art during Mexico trip





Pupils from Diss High School have returned from the trip of a lifetime in Mexico.

Forty students travelled to La Paz, the capital of Baja California Sur, on May 16 as a part of a week-long trip.

During their stay, the group, aged between 14 and 17, visited St John’s College in the South American city, where they were given a tour of the site, before taking part in a series of joint activities with their Mexican peers.

They sampled La Paz’s urban gallery – a series of murals and colourful artwork dotted along the streets of the city – in the hope of gaining inspiration for future art projects.

Other activities included a boat ride to Isla Espiritu Santo – a Unesco biosphere reserve – to see marine life, such as turtles and dolphins, a visit to an old silver mine and some time at the beach.

The school hopes to welcome Mexican students and staff to Diss next year.
