This week year 7 went on a great trip to Ljubljana Castle to learn about its history and how it developed into the castle we see today.

They took the bus to the city centre and then walked to the bottom of the funicular - the students were happy they did not need to walk up the hill! Once at the top they were met by their tour guide who took them outside the castle walls to the first known point of use - the Roman well which is 2000 years old. They then met a Roman Priestess and a Centurion! After that they had a trip through time meeting various characters who were pivotal in the development of the castle, including Saint George and King Frederick III.

After a climb up the tower for a photo opportunity we had lunch and went back to school. The students had a great time and were exemplary throughout the trip, a real credit to the school.
