Battlefields Trip

Students in Year 9 took part in the annual Battlefields study trip to France and Belgium from Saturday 11th to Tuesday 14th February.
 
The students visited several World War I sites including preserved British trenches at the Sanctuary Wood Museum in Belgium. Here, the students had the opportunity to go in the trenches to get an idea of what the soldiers would have experienced one-hundred years ago. Students also visited notable memorial sites such as the Tyne Cot Cemetery, the Langemark Cemetery and the Canadian war memorial at Vimy Ridge.
 
On Sunday 12th February Ruislip High students laid a wreath at the Last Post Ceremony at the Menin Gate in Ypres. The trip was a great success and the students were fantastic ambassadors for the school.
