Easter in Amsterdam

Thirty Year 9 students met at LJL Airport at 4am on Friday 7th April for a 3 day trip to Amsterdam. History and Art were high on the agenda. The trip took in the Van Gogh Museum (amazing), a canal tour (relaxing), the Anne Frank House (moving), the Rejksmuseum (fascinating), the Jewish Museum and Synagogue (interesting) and the Amsterdam Dungeons (Frightening!). It was a very busy trip. Several students were emotional when they were told the details of the Anne Frank's story. Many purchased Anne Frank's diary while we were there. Gateacre students were a real credit to our school- it was the staff who gave them a round of applause at the end of the trip in the arrivals lounge. Roll on the 2018 trip.
