Battlefields 2014

Students from Year 9 and 10 will be visiting the First World War battlefields in Picardy and Flanders in February 2014.

The study visit is an annual event and includes a number of key memorials, sites and graveyards. The most poignant aspect each year is the Last Post Ceremony at the Menin Gate. Launceston College is extremely proud to have been asked to place a wreath during the ceremony when we visit in 2014, the first time we have been given this honour. Students from Launceston College Castle Unit will be making the wreath.
