On Sunday 3rd June 2018, the 8th Pals Battalion St John’s Academy set off on the Battlefields Trip. Mrs T. Sinclair led the trip with much appreciated help from Mrs Carroll, Mr Wilson and Mrs S. Sinclair. The trip was a great success with day one including a visit to Brugge, a medieval historic settlement. The pupils enjoyed some time relaxing in the sun and exploring the local culture.
On day two we explored the Southern Lip of Ypres Salient where we visited Messines, the Pool of Peace, Sanctuary Wood, Hooge museum, Menin Road, Hill 60 and Black Watch Corner. The Pals were able to walk through an original World War One trench and experienced what it must have been like for our soldiers. Read more
