40 Gillotts Year 8 students have just returned from a wonderful trip to the Mosel Valley in Germany. The students stayed in a youth hostel in Traben Trarbach with other visiting students from Luxemburg and Colombia, which made watching the World Cup quarter final match with England an interesting experience!
During the trip, the students visited Cochem Castle and the Roman city of Trier where they saw the Roman ampitheatre and the cathedral. They also toured a winery, and went on a boat trip to Bernkastel-Kues, a very pretty village on the Mosel. The students had plenty of opportunities to practise their German and learned lots about the area and its history.
