Poland Trip 2018
The Religious Studies Department is again organising an educational visit to Kraków, Poland for the current Year 9 students.
One of the main reasons for visiting Kraków is to visit Oświęcim, better known by its German name of Auschwitz. This town is the site of the massive concentration camp of Auschwitz-Birkenau and a visit here leaves a long-lasting impression. Students will also get to hear, first hand, the experiences of a survivor of the Holocaust and have a living connection to history. The trip will be a five day, four night stay in the centre of Kraków and will involve other activities to give the trip a balance and ensure pupils get the very most from their time in Poland.
The trip will take place between Wednesday 24th and Sunday 28th October 2018 during the October half term holiday.
Students’ places are limited to a maximum of 44 and I am anticipating demand to be extremely high. All students seriously considering applying to join this trip should complete the attached slip and return to the Lower School Office before Friday 9th February.
