Belguim Trip

On Friday 22nd March, 14 excited Key Stage 3 students were gathered at the college at 5:30am for the start of a long, exciting journey to Belgium and back. Taking the Eurotunnel to Calais then on to Belgium, the first stop was the impressive Passchendaele Memorial Museum, which has uniforms, weapons, artillery and memorabilia all with an audio guide, before going down into the living quarters and trenches from the famous battle which took place there. After the museum, the students were taken to the picture-postcard pretty town of Ypres, for lunch and, of course, a trip to one of the famous Belgian chocolate shops. Once we returned to the minibus, the next stop was the Cite Europe shopping centre in Calais for the students to practise their French, before taking the Eurotunnel back. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day and made some long-lasting memories of Belgium.
