Lower Secondary trip to the park
Our Y7, Y8 and Y9 students went on an educational field trip to the Middelheim Openair Museum in Middelheim Park, Antwerp to visit the "Congoville" art exhibition and to enjoy a much needed 'activity day' outside of the classroom.
To finally be allowed to do something together outside made even the walk to the park an exciting event with lots of storytelling and laughter. The students enjoyed the “Congoville” exhibits which, as the name suggests, reflected the colonial history between Belgium and the Congo. All the exhibits were, in their own different ways, relevant to the students IMYC topics and back in school some students made a presentation of their favourite piece and what it meant to them.
A trip to a park was also an opportunity to have a picnic, play games and enjoy each other's friendship and company. New friendships were created and firm friendships were cemented on one of our first, but thankfully not the last, outside-of-school trips of 2021.
