Building resilience and wellbeing in students; an interview with geographer and pastoral expert, Karen Corfield
We caught up with our colleague Karen Corfield, now an Education Travel Manager here at Discover the World Education, but formerly a Pastoral Deputy, about the importance of increasing students’ wellbeing and Resilience.
We have all been avidly following the activity at Fagradalsfjall where the Geldingadalir eruption has been taking place since the 19th March 2021. The most recent government announcement has allowed all of us to go from day dreaming about visiting Iceland to actively planning a trip. Discover the World Education’s owner, Clive Stacey, was fortunate enough to visit Iceland, and during his trip he visited the current eruption site. The interview is perfect for you to use in your classroom so that students can consider what you might experience at a volcano and what to think about before going to Iceland…

A butterfly effect that had impacts across the globe and captured the attention of worldwide media.
