Pupils see stunning sites on Greece trip

48 Classics and Latin pupils had a memorable trip to Greece over the Easter break as they visited archaeological sites and museums.

The boys and girls from Fourth Year to Upper Sixth travelled to mainland Greece and the Peloponnese as they embarked on a packed but rewarding schedule of activities.

During the expedition the tour group visited eleven sites and eight museums with trips to the Acropolis in Athens and the magnificent sanctuary at Delphi wowing pupils. The museum highlight for many was at Olympia where they saw some of the finest examples of ancient sculpture.

Lower Sixth pupil Elicia Wilson loved the trip: “I enjoyed every moment! Around each corner there’s something interesting and beautiful. It is an experience I will never forget.” Fellow classmate Jess Carroll agreed: “I’ve never been so excited to walk into a museum! It was a very educational and fun trip.”

Head of Classics Mr Alastair Thorley, who organised the trip, said: “The pupils showed great enthusiasm throughout the week, despite early starts and a busy schedule, and they were a pleasure to be around.”

All eyes are on the next Classics trip which will be to Rome and the Bay of Naples in the Easter of 2018.
