Mrs Milton and two Y9 girls, Charlotte Rowley and Lydia Mulholland from the Sunnydale Campus, are currently in Belgium as part of the WW1 Centenary Battlefields Tour. Last night they attended the Last Post Ceremony which has become part of the daily life in the Belgium town of Ypres. The local people are proud of this simple but moving tribute to the courage and self-sacrifice of those who fell in defence of their town during WW1. Today they will visit the Flanders Field Museum and attend a ‘Coming World Remember Me Workshopbefore heading home.  Charlotte is pictured laying a wreath at a ceremony in Ypres in memory of the dead service men and women.
