The Borealis Society Expedition Report – Winter Lecture Series  


Attendees of the Borealis Expedition to Iceland, including College pupils and Alumnae, will be discussing their experiences and the impact of this opportunity at our upcoming ‘Expedition Report’ lecture next Friday (25th November). 

The expedition had a paramount impact on the explorers, and they are keen to share their experiences with their fellow pupils and families. The second of our winter lecture series allows attendees the opportunity to hear first-hand how much of a lasting affect the trip could have on not only their development but also their confidence and future career aspirations. 

Since their return, the College girls have reflected upon the once-in-a-lifetime expedition, and credit it for taking them out of their comfort zone and allowing them to discover what they are truly capable of.  

We were a close group before as Mount girls, but we share memories that we just cannot share with anyone else.”  – Rosie 

The girls recognised the magnitude of the trip and emphasised how initially they felt overwhelmed, however, once departed on their trip, their mindset saw a dramatic shift. “I never doubted myself once whilst I was there, I never thought I couldn’t do something. We came back changed – in a positive way. It truly is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and I will never be able to do something like that in my life – the views were incredible, and nothing will compare” – Ruby  

“Backpacking is actually a really satisfying thing to do, knowing you have everything you need right there. You are living that lifestyle of being so remote, and self-sufficient, I miss it so much” – Rosie   

We look forward to welcoming you to hear in greater depth the challenges and encounters experienced by the Borealis Society Expedition Team, and how you, or your daughter could benefit from stepping out of your comfort zone.
