In July 2021, after a turbulent year, the pupils at Eastwood Village Primary School received the most incredible opportunity from the amazing Diversify and The Smile Foundation. They enabled a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Gulliver’s Valley.
In the past few years, Diversify has come to Eastwood Village Primary school to host a number of workshops. Despite covid-19, Diversify has still come to school to remind the pupils of Eastwood Village Primary school about equality, racism, disabilities, and lots of other social issues.
On the morning of the trip, there was a buzz around the school. A Y6 student said, “I never thought I’d get to go to an actual theme park!”. The Year One pupils were more excited than ever! The first ride the pupils went on was the pirate ship which was fantastic. Another ride the pupils went on was the water flume! It was Y5’s favourite ride but not Y6’s favourite as they got stuck on it. It was still an amazing trip!
Our pupils (and teachers) all had a great trip. We are all so thankful for this opportunity which we would not have had otherwise!
