Coolum meets France 2014


​Our students will spend most of their two week France adventure touring the battlefields, cemeteries and memorials of the western front including Ypres in Belgium, the Somme Region and Passchendaele.  Students will also experience the “life as a digger”, a platoon experience beginning at the Memorial Museum of Passchendaele where students will dress in full military uniform, trek over the same terrain that heroes fought and died on, eat similar rations and drill and march as a cohesive unit. This march ends at Tyne Cot Cemetery, where students will have a far better understanding of, and a profound gratitude to those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Our students will also have the opportunity to revel in the delights of Paris and the numerous iconic landmarks and museums as well as the surrounds, ending with a day trip to Versailles.

We are very proud of our students and their families for making the commitment to be a part of such an amazing experience.
