The Year 10 students have been having an incredible experience in Israel for Shorashim. They have climbed Masada and taken in the sunrise, swam in the Dead Sea, and again at Tel Aviv and in the Kinneret. They have participated in archaeological digs, wandered through several markets, learnt why Israel is known as the Innovation capital and even had a ‘blackout dinner’ where they ate their meal entirely in the dark, making use of the senses of smell, hearing and taste. There was also the opportunity to visit Independence Hall where Israel was declared a State by Ben Gurion in 1948 and the students caught up with the Habo Madrichim to find out about the Kibbutz. The schedule is busy, and the days jam packed with students clocking up 28,000 steps a day!
