The half term break was an opportunity for the Pestalozzi students to go on trips and discover the treasures around them in East Sussex.
On Monday, 13th February, the first year students got the opportunity to visit the historic Battle Abbey. The weather was windy but the sun didn’t let us down and the day was filled with fresh air and history. The students received a guided tour of the Abbey and battlefields were the Battle of 1066 took place, which they found very interesting.
Whilst taking a look at the ruins of the abbey, the students reflected on the many lives that were lost during the Battle. The students admired the beauty of the landscape that hides the tragedies that took place there just over 950 years ago on the 14th October. The students had a great time visiting the Abbey and took lots of pictures, creating memories they will never forget.
The trip to Brighton started off with great weather. The day was bright, and after an hour of driving, the students arrived near the pier to be welcomed by beautiful view of the sea and blue sky. After spending some time on the pier taking pictures and enjoying the view, the students had some free time to look around the city and explore.
The purpose of the trip was to allow the students to visit somewhere different and take in the delights of the English city beside the sea.
As well as visiting the famous Brighton Pier, the students visited a chocolate shop named Choccywoccydoodah, Brighton Museum and Art Gallery and took pictures in front of the Royal Pavilion.
Last but not least, there was an unexpected meeting with former Pestalozzi students who happened to be visiting Brighton for the day. Some of them are currently studying at Brighton University and alumna Darpan Bohara is currently studying at Smith College in the US. It was a shame there wasn’t more time to catch up with the Pestalozzi alumni and enjoy more of what the city had to offer.
