On 21st September 2014 two of our Year 10 history students set off on the government sponsored First World War Battlefields Centenary tour. They travelled to Belgium and France along with Mrs Hodgson to take part in a three day tour. During the trip, the students visited a number of sites which enabled them to reflect on the First World War and its affect on the lives of ordinary people and whether remembrance is more or less important 100 years on from the conflict. The trip was a very moving experience as the girls visited sites such as the Tyne Cot Cemetery, Thiepval Woods, Sheffield Memorial Park and attended the Ceremony of the Last Post at the Menin Gate in Ypres.
The Girls thoroughly enjoyed the trip and were great ambassadors for the school. They are now busy working on an assembly to share with their fellow students to encourage everyone within our school community not to forget those who sacrificed their lives during the First World War.
