From Thursday 25th to Tuesday 30th May, a group of 70 pupils from Years 9 and 10 and seven staff made the first visit to Berlin by a group from Corpus Christi since 2019, the eighth overall such trip. They enjoyed glorious weather throughout their stay in the German capital and started their visit with a walking tour of the main sights.
Over their six day stay, they visited the TV Tower, the DDR Museum, Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp, the Reichstag and the Olympic Stadium, as well as having plenty of opportunities to shop at Alexanderplatz, the Mall of Berlin and the Ku’Damm. Many pupils enjoyed visiting the master chocolatier, Rausch, and the trip was rounded off with lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe.
The pupils were fantastic ambassadors for the school throughout the trip and coped well with stressful situations such as rapidly changing flights at Frankfurt Airport and getting on and off the Underground in one go. One of the pilots on the journey to Berlin commented that it was the fastest he had ever seen 77 people board a plane! You can view some photos of the trip below, but more and a ‘live blog’ of the trip can be viewed on our dedicated Twitter feed www.twitter.com/CCHSBerlin .
Thank you in particular to all parents and carers for their support, and for the staff team of Mr Veevers, Mrs Barton, Mr Wilson, Mrs Parkinson, Mr Davies and Miss Lambert who gave up half of their half-term break to make sure that the trip could take place.
We are now planning for our next trip in 2025, which will be for current Year 7 and 8 pupils, and we hope to have further information regarding this in the next few weeks.
