School Visits

The courage and accomplishments of the men of the Terra Nova expedition should not fade into insignificance. There is much to celebrate in this astonishing story of human grit.

We all learn best when having fun! My sessions are highly interactive with lots of opportunities for students to share their knowledge and participate in the storytelling.  

My school sessions can be tailored to various age levels and group sizes and highlight:

  • The challenges of provisioning the expedition and the difficulties of getting to the ice,

  • Some of the colourful characters that accompanied Scott,

  • Human survival in the extreme Antarctic environment,

  • Several lesser-known 'episodes' such as the mid-winter journey to the penguin rookery, undertaken in complete darkness and at temperatures of -50 degrees.
