Year 6 Trip to Belgium - the next instalment...
The Menin Gate, Messines and the Passchendaele Musem
Yesterday evening was spent exploring Ypres, and indulging in some chicken, chips and chocolate - but not all at the same time! Our weary travellers visited the Menin Gate and we are so proud of our St. Stephen's Ambassadors Oliver and Blanche who laid a wreath on our behalf at The Last Post Ceremony. The children heard a wonderful Fijian choir accompanying the ceremony in what was a powerful and memorable evening.
After reading all the letters from home, today's activites have included a walk around Messines and and the Passchendaele Museum and trenches.
