Battlefields Trip

25th June 2018

Five of our Year 9 students, accompanied by Mr Evans, returned on Thursday from the 2018 Secondary Schools Battlefields Trip, which is run in conjunction with the Bailiff’s Chambers to commemorate the centenary of the First World War​. The British, French, and German cemeteries, the Canadian, Indian, and South African memorials, the Passchendaele Museum, the Menin Gate ceremony, the Thiepval Memorial to the Missing of the Somme, the Lochnagar Crater, and the Jersey Memorial in Guillemont all impressed upon their visitors the scale of the horror and tragedy that befell Europe a century ago, and the invaluable worth of peace and reconciliation.​
