Our Berlin trip 2016 was once again a wonderful experience for all students; we visited the Olympic stadium for a tour, the German Parliament building, the famous TV tower which was spectacular at night, the Berlin Wall, East Side Gallery, Checkpoint Charlie, the Jewish Holocaust Memorial and Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp.
Some students also went to the Berlin Hertha football match against Cologne (score was 2-1 to Hertha!) and we all went to the ice hockey match to see the Berlin ice-bears play the Mannheim eagles (score was 4-3 to the bears!).
The most poignant experience for our students was the Liturgy which we took part in at the Jewish Memorial – the opportunity for us to gather our thoughts and to reflect on what we had seen and learnt during our time in Berlin.
