Over the first week of the Easter holiday, thirty budding classicists from the Removes to the Lower Sixth, travelled to Greece to enrich their knowledge of the classical world. The six-day trip allowed students to experience ancient Greece in its truest form, bringing their studies to life and giving them plenty of opportunities to explore the historical sites freely. They began their trip at the Theatre of Thorikos and then battled through the wind and rain to reach the temple of Poseidon at Sounion. After a night’s rest, the group spent the entire second day exploring the key sites of Athens such as the Acropolis, the Olympic Stadium and the Agora. It was a stunning day that let the cohort discover these world heritage sights in their true intended beauty. The next few days were a whirlwind mixture of travelling around the mainland and experiencing some of the most stunning sights in all of Greece such as Delphi, Olympia, the modern town of Nafplion and the largest theatre in mainland Greece, at Epidauros. It was wonderful to see the enthusiasm of every pupil, especially when they began to recite classical texts centre-stage. With the flight home approaching rapidly, it was time for one last visit, this time to the ancient city of Corinth and the stunning Corinth Canal, with a quick stop for lunch consisting of traditional Souvlaki. Again, it was great to see pupils so eager to try something new whilst away. The staff commented that the group were outstandingly well-behaved, and that they were a true credit to the School at all times.
