Berlin in October

Year 7 went on a team building trip to Osmington Bay PGL centre for a weekend of activities and friendships.

QEH pupils took in all the major sights and the rich history of Berlin during their weekend trip to the German capital in October half term.

An incredible walking tour included the site of Hitler’s bunker, the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe and the Brandenburg Gate, followed by a visit to the Topography of Terror – a museum about the Nazi SS on the site of the former Gestapo HQ.

We were also lucky to tour the Reichstag where we sat in the German parliament, the Bundestag, and learned how it works, followed by a visit to the famous Reichstag Dome.

The most harrowing site was Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp, which was a prototype for the later, more infamous camps such as Auschwitz.

We also learned about the many courageous people who risked their lives to escape from the former East Germany into free West Germany in the Checkpoint Charlie museum and toured the Berlin Wall Memorial.

Ollie is a QEH 'lifer', as he joined QEH Juniors in Year 3, eleven years ago.  It's been great to watch his development through the years, both on and off the pitch.

Ollie signs for the Bears!

Huge congratulations to Mark who has joined the top 2% of the population as a member of Mensa. In typical modest fashion, Mark sat the test on a recent weekend and didn't mention it to any of his teachers!

As well as being Head of Religion and Philosophy, Zak leads our digital vision. He was instrumental in developing our excellent online learning offering during lockdown, much to the relief of our parents, and is now leading the roll out of our school device programme.

Anyone feeling hungry?
