JET setting youngsters have been expanding their horizons with a recent trip to North Africa.

Eleven pupils from Brandeston Hall - the preparatory school for Framlingham College - recently visited Morocco.

The children, who were accompanied by parents and staff, undertook a trekking expedition, in which they ascended to the dizzying heights of the High Atlas Mountains, reaching altitudes of 2,800m.

The trek proved even more of an achievement due to the weather, which was unusually cold for the first few days.

The children battled through four inches of snow on the way to reaching their goal, but eventually the sun broke through and they were able to appreciate the surrounding landscape.

They also had the chance to live with the Berbers, an indigenous group from the area, in their farming villages.

The group then visited the coastal towns of Essaourira and Marrakech, where they explored the bustling market and even joined the locals in a game of football.
