WW1 Day

The Third Years had yet another busy and interactive day last Friday when they participated in the History Department’s WWI day.  The students spent each period of the school day listening to, and participating in, a session with a visiting speaker; each with an aim of giving them a better understanding of the historical and social context of this period of recent history.  Topics covered included, the German perspective and the importance  of WWI in the rise of the Nazis, the role of women in WWI, medical services and developments during WWI, WWI in the air and  Tommy Atkins: the British soldier in WWI.
