Year 9s enjoy Christmas festivities in Germany
Our year 9 students are spending the last weekend of term in Germany enjoying that country’s incomparable Christmas festivities.
The students are away till Wednesday December 18th. An action packed trip of course involves plenty of classroom based activities, but the bulk of each day is spent on excursions.
These include a visit to the Christmas markets in Aachen, shopping visits to various Christmas markets in Cologne, an introduction to the history of chocolate at the must visit Chocolate museum with its freestanding chocolate fountain, and a tour of the magnificent Kölner Dom that survived much of the Allied bombing during the Second World War.
Students will also have the opportunity to spend the day at the Phantasialand theme park; another popular tourist destination.
