St Michael in the Hamlet
October 2014 News
We're delighted to report that our pupils had a really successful trip to Ypres! We would like to thank Ms. Millican and Mr. Backstrom for giving up their time freely to escort the children on this very important visit to commemorate WW1. This was a great experience for our pupils and we were delighted to have been represented as part of a group of local schools. The behaviour of all pupils was excellent and gained many positive comments from other visitors to Ypres, who commended the pupils on their high standard of behaviour. This included passport control, who commented that they'd 'never seen such well-behaved pupils.'
