Springwest students visit Ypres.
On 4th and 5th April 37 year 9 and 10 students visited Ypres, Belgium to show their respect and gratitude for those who died during World War I.
Visiting cemeteries, museums and battlefields such as Hill 60 and Caterpillar Crater, a
giant depression in the ground caused by the explosion of a mine under German trenches, the trip offered a chance for students to stop and reflect on the sacrifice made by so many young men and women.
As a mark of respect, all students attended the remembrance service at the world famous Menin Gate which happens every evening. At the ceremony, two year 9 students, Maisie Curry and Michelle Goto laid a wreath on behalf of the school.
