Student European Adventure

What a trip! Students returned from their 17 day tour of London, the World War One battlefields, Brugge and Paris on Sunday 26th April.

Whilst overseas, students were immersed in the cultures of the United Kingdom, Belgium and France. They toured the main sights of London, Brugge and Paris and got to experience a live theatre production of ‘Wicked’. They also tasted snails in Paris.

What was of particular significance, was the chance to further enhance their understanding of the Anzac tradition and the contribution Australian soldiers have made internationally during the First World War. Students visited the many Australian cemeteries and memorials as well as an exploration of trench systems, tunnels and artillery craters. On the evening of 15th April, the students took part in the wreathe laying ceremony at the Menin Gate in Ypres. Thank you to Caringbah RSL and Miranda RSL who provided badges, poppies and funds to help the students’ commemoration.  Students whose ancestors had fought in the Great War also had the opportunity to honour them by visiting their grave sites.

This was truly a trip of a lifetime. It will remain a memorable experience and promote the students’ love of lifelong learning. Throughout the trip, student behaviour was exemplary and truly a credit to their families and to the school.
