Year 9 Battlefields Trip

The annual Year 9 History Battlefields visit took place this weekend to Ypres in Belgium and the Somme in France.   

This was an extra special commemorative visit since it is the 100th anniversary of the signing of the armistice which ended hostilities on the 11th November 1918 and we were very lucky to go on the weekend of the anniversary itself. We were interviewed by Belgian state TV station RTL at the Menin Gate memorial to the missing about the importance of remembrance and this was shown on national news on Friday night.
