Our Year 8 students had a fantastic experience exploring the Battlefields of WWI when they visited Northern France and Belgium recently. Staying just outside of Ypres, the group had a tour of the battlefields around this area and enjoyed an ‘Into the Trenches’ workshop where they were told about life in the trenches and had the chance to put on army uniforms.
Of special significance was their visit to the Menin Gate where the students were able to take part in the ceremony by laying a wreath in memory of Gerald Bishop who lived on Durleigh Road and attended Dr Morgan’s Grammar School. Gerald Bishop died in the 3rd battle of Ypres in 1917 and he is commemorated on the Menin Gate Memorial to the missing, along with 54,395 Commonwealth soldiers who died in the area and have no known grave.
During the residential trip, the students and staff also visited the site of the Battle of the Somme, the Newfoundland Memorial, Flanders Fields Museum and the Canadian memorial at Vimy Ridge during their stay.
29 tired youngsters got home just before midnight on the last Friday, with lots of lovely Belgium chocolate and memories we hope they'll treasure!
Mrs Phillips, Head of History who led the trip said, “The students were fabulous; even though the weather was not particularly kind to us, they had a great attitude, asked lots of interesting questions and were enjoyable company.”
We will be running this trip in 2020, letters will be issued to current Year 7 students in the summer term.
