57 Ely College students visited the First World War Battlefields earlier this month. The three-day tour included memorials, trenches and cemeteries in both Ypres and the Somme. Highlights include a journey underground at the Wellington Quarry and two members of the group laying a wreath at the Last Post Ceremony at the Menin Gate.
It was the 11th time the trip has gone ahead and we hope that another group will be going out to pay their respects in November. The Battlefields trip compliments the learning of Year 9 History work and also provides them with a fantastic opportunity to develop socially.
