Another great day, this time exploring the Somme region. Both coaches visited Lochnagar crater, the Devonshire cemetery, Thiepval memorial and Beaumont-Hamel battlesite, amongst others.
Last night we all had a chance to try snails at dinner and many students gave them a go! Students have been excellent and we are very proud of them.
Looking forward to travelling to Belgium today.
We have all safely arrived at the accommodation and are sitting down to our first meal. A great day had by all!
Update. We have arrived safely at Dover and are on the ferry ready to sail for Calais. Weather conditions are good so hoping for a smooth crossing!
Final preparations for the trip are now complete and we are looking forward to departing for France on Sunday. Please note the following:
– please arrive at Southam College by 5am.
– there will not be access to car parks on the school site so please park off-site and then accompany children to the coaches if you wish to wave us off.
Many thanks for your support of this very memorable trip.
