Backwell pupils have Titanic day out
PUBLISHED: 14:00 19 February 2019
Pupils from a school in Backwell took a trip to Belfast to see the Titanic Exhibition.
Year five and six pupils from Fairfield School, had a guided tour, which included seeing the slipway the doomed vessel launched from, and a look around the Titanic’s tender, the SS Nomadic.
The trip formed part of their 20th-century history studies.
Headmistress, Lesley Barton, said: “They loved the interactive galleries, special effects, and full-scale reconstructions they will remember for the rest of their lives.
“The children’s enthusiasm, curiosity, interest and exemplary behaviour drew compliments from everyone they came across during the day, from the easyJet crew, who gave them a mention over its announcement system, to the staff at the exhibition, who overran with the guided tour because they were having such a good time with the children.”
