WWI History - France & Belgium
SCHOOL TOURS TO FRANCE & BELGIUM
On our battlefields tours, students investigate key aspects of World War I and the Australian experience of the war, including the nature and significance of the war in world and Australian history. Visiting the French battlefields on an educational tour is a unique opportunity to see the places where Australians fought, including The Somme and Ypres. France is also a popular destination for language and arts students. This educational trip can be combined with elements of the WWI Gallipoli Tour.
