Form 5 visit the Ramsgate Tunnels

On Thursday 13th June, Form 5 visited the Ramsgate Tunnels. These were used as shelters from the bombs during WW2. The children were lucky enough to be shown around by an 84 year old gentleman who used the tunnels when he was a child. He was an absolutely fascinating guide and it meant the children were privileged enough to hear many first hand accounts of what life was like during the war years. Mrs Surridge tells me that Form 5 acquitted themselves beautifully and asked him many thoughtful and intelligent questions. After this they moved on to Botany Bay. Having spent the week praying to the weather gods, they were lucky enough not to experience any rain! The children ate their lunch on the beach and then spent the next hour and a half exploring the rock pools, making sand sculptures, eating ice creams and looking at the stacks, stumps and caves. Form 5 were incredibly well behaved and all the staff thought that they were a pleasure to take out.
