It was an amazing trip around sunny Greece that deepened our understanding of our studies.
Over the Easter holidays, the Classics department and eager students from Years 11-13 travelled to Greece to contextualise the multitude of topics learnt in class.
We visited both the sanctuary of Apollo in Delphi and the sanctuary of Zeus in Olympia, as well as having a race in the original Olympic 'stadium'. In Mycaenae, we visited the Treasury of Atreus, a tomb, and saw a mountain claimed to be the slain figure of Agamemnon (a character studied by many on the trip). Of course, we saw the Parthenon, although the construction works marred its majesty ever so slightly.
Our journey across Greece featured other bonuses, such as the jaw-dropping Corinth Canal, the picturesque town of Nafplio and the sheer amount of dogs roaming around. All in all, it was an amazing trip around sunny Greece that deepened our understanding of our studies.
