"History never really says goodbye. History says 'See you later!' - Eduardo Galeano
As part of the History curriculum, all Year 9 students had an insightful and entertaining overnight trip in Ieper/ Ypres (Belgium). It was a major logistic enterprise having so many students travelling at once but the learners and the hosts were very cooperative and the trip ran smooth!
9B, 9D, 9G, 9I , 9J and Pathfinder students in front of the beautiful Flanders Fields Museum.
During this field trip they visited several important historical sites (memorials, battlefields, cemeteries) and participated in various activities. For example, they listened and analyzed the stories shared and collected data as historians do. This trip allowed our students to understand the nature and effects of global conflicts much better, from outside the normative classroom setting. Furthermore, the trip was also a great opportunity to bond and have a great time with peers in good weather. A big thank goes to all the supervisors who made this trip possible.
