Blogs and News - St George's School For Girls, Edinburgh
On Thursday 29th October, the P3 and P4 girls went on an expedition up Corstorphine Hill from School. We left School on a damp morning with our fingers crossed that it would not rain as forecast. We left school at 9.15 in the morning and walked along the pavement to the foot of Corstorphine Hill.
We crossed the road and began the long climb to the top. We stopped at the Rest and be Thankful and had our snacks. We saw a dazzle of zebra and a kudu at the Zoo! We continued our walk to the top of the hill and found the Sir Walter Scott Tower, affectionately named the "Rapunzel Tower". We retraced our steps and made it back to school in time for lunch and before the rain started to fall.
Here are some comments from the girls:
