Ypres Trip Oct 2018

On the 22nd of October 2018, a group of our Year 3 to Year 6 children departed to Belgium and Northern France to visit the World War One battlefield sites. Being the 100 year anniversary of the war, we felt it was the perfect opportunity to give children a chance to experience, and really understand, the affect that the war had on the people of Europe and the huge loss of life. The children were able to visit actual trenches, experience the dugouts, see first hand the many, many cemeteries, and really understand why it is so important to remember those terrible events from the past. Lest we forget.
