GCSE History students and teachers who spent five days in Berlin in late October
05/11/2019 BERLIN ADVENTURE FOR LORETO COLLEGE HISTORIANS

A group of GCSE History students from Loreto College Coleraine spent an educational and enjoyable five days in Berlin at the end of October to complement their studies.

The forty students, all in Years 11 and 12 at the College, enjoyed a very full programme of activities and visits.  Highlights of the trip included visits to the Brandenberg Gate, Topography of Terror exhibition, the Wahnsee, Sans Souci Palace, the Olympic Stadium, Stasi Prison, the Holocaust Memorial and the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp.  The students, and the staff who accompanied them (including trip leader Mr Bob Murphy, Head of History, Mr Sean Murtagh, Mrs Schira McGoldrick and Mrs Maja Johnston) found the trip both thought-provoking and enjoyable.

Mr Michael James, Principal of Loreto College, paid tribute to Mr Bob Murphy, Head of History, who organised and led the trip, for the imaginative and meticulous planning of such a wonderful educational experience for the GCSE History students.
