History and Geography students are working hard to fundraise for their exciting five-day tour of Belgian and French WWI Battlefield sites in November.

Forty students from Years 7 to 11 will be visiting museums and war graves in the Ypres and Vimys Ridge regions and will get a taste of the hard life of the soldiers in the trenches and tunnels as well as gaining an appreciation of the vast number of them who died during the four-year war.

"One of the highlights will be attending the Menin Gate Last Post ceremony where students will take part in a wreath-laying ceremony on behalf of the College," said Miss Hill, who will accompany the trip and co-ordinates much of the fundraising.

"Students have given up their free time at weekends to pack bags at local supermarkets, bake cakes for bake sales, run a Friday tuck shop and holding hamper raffles to subsidise the cost of the trip,” said Miss Hill.

Students have also raised £400 by collecting clothes to be recycled for cash.

 "We are also extremely grateful to have received a cheque for £500 from the Christine Woodmancy Trust," said Miss Hill - who added that students will be keeping up their fundraising efforts right up until they leave on 2 November 2015.
