A Trip Of Remembrance

Upcoming Events

During this week 42 Homewood students in Year 9 and 10 are going to Ypres and The Somme with the History Department. The students will be visiting World War One battlefields and trenches to understand the cultural impact that the war had upon the countries involved, alongside the physical destruction on the landscape. Two Year 10 students Oskar and Georgia will be laying a wreath in the Last Post ceremony at the Menin Gate. Miss Farrington, Principal Teacher of History says that ‘I feel it is important that all students are aware of the implications of the Wars and I know that the students will be deeply moved by both the ceremony and the memorials.’
