Year 9 and GCSE students visited Saint Michaels church to visit the World War One exhibition commemorating 100 years since the end of the “Great War”. Students learnt how local people were involved in the war effort and how students of Saint Michaels College were sent as soldiers to fight. Alas, 13 soldiers from St Michael’s lost their lives in the conflict.
The students learned about the cultural significance of this event and the legacy which is still felt to this day. They benefited from what was a sombre but important reflection of the time.
