Just before half term, 26 sixth-form students and four staff set off for the fabulous Central European city of Prague, where a varied itinerary included a walking tour of the old town and visits to the castle and cathedral, the Jewish quarter and National Museum.
Head of Government & Politics, and Teacher of History, Mr McDowell said:
"An excursion out of town took us to the former concentration camp at Terezin, where we learned about the brutality of the Nazi occupation, and the sobering Museum of Communism was a reminder that totalitarianism is a quite recent memory for the Czech people. However, the trip wasn't just about the darker side of history: we enjoyed the beautiful architecture and excellent hospitality of this stunning capital and gained a great insight into European heritage. The trip concluded with the inaugural Molly Malone Quiz on all that we had learned from our visits: this was won by the combined Moredun-Kimmerghame-Arniston team with a score of 72%."
Thanks to all involved who helped make the trip such a success.
