Field Trip Day 2019
The annual Eaglebrook Field Trip Day was Monday, April 8. Each Form spent the day away from the classroom learning and exploring around New England.
The Sixth Form and the faculty members of the Science Department spent the day at the New England Aquarium in Boston touring the exhibits and then participating in a squid dissection lab. The group finished their day watching an IMAX video about sea turtles. See photos from their trip here.
Fifth Formers and English Department faculty were split into two groups. Half the class went to the Noah Webster, Mark Twain, and Harriet Beecher Stowe Houses in Connecticut. The other half traveled to Salem, MA and visited the Salem Witch Museum and House of Seven Gables. See photos here.
The Fourth Form students and their history teachers traveled to Boston and were dropped off at the Bunker Hill Memorial, and from there they walked along the Freedom Trail to the Boston Harbor where they took a historical cruise. This experience gave the students a detailed look at what they studied over the course of the fall and winter terms in Colonial History. See photos from the trip here.
Finally, the Third Formers and their teachers spent the morning exploring and learning about the areas around campus. Due to the rain, instead of repelling and doing compass reading in the afternoon, the group traveled to Hadley, MA where they visited an indoor climbing wall. See photos here.
On Wednesday, May 8 students will spend another day away from the classroom, when they participate in Global Day.
