LGS Surf Trip to Cornwall with Longline Surf School

During the Halloween Half term in 2015, 14 students accompanied by Miss Doherty and Mrs Stewart made their way to Cornwall for a week of surfing and activities. The trip was organized in conjunction with Longline Surf school as a result of our annual surf club with them every summer term.

It was the second time that we had organized this trip and it was even better than the first. We look forward to our next surfing adventure!
