Battlefields Visit to Ypres and the Somme

1On the 24th and 25th October 2014 Wavell students from Years 9 and 10 went on a tour of the WWI Battlefields. We visited the Ypres area on the first day, then stayed overnight in France, visiting the Somme on the second day.

We had a very enjoyable time visiting different sites, learning about the war and commemorating those who fought and died.

For many students it was very thought provoking and they have come away with a much greater understanding of the war and the development of warfare. Some of our students got to visit the graves of family members and lay a poppy to show remembrance.

We hope to continue with the Battlefields Trip each year – so watch this space…
