2008 Belgium Trip for Year 9
Students at Wayland Community High School
A wet and cold 3 day visit to the 1st World War Battlefields
again took place at the end of February for a group of year 9 students
as part of a history project. Following the same format as
in previous years they visited many of the sites that were
fought over at such great loss during the war. Based outside Ypres at Lo-Reninge
they visited many famous sights including the 'In Flanders Fields' exhibition, the Menin Gate,
Talbot House in Poperinge, that was the start of TocH, Tyne Cot, Essex Farm and the Yorkshire Trench.
New this year was a visit to the crater at Spanbroekmolen.
