Over the Easter break, 33 students took part in a joint Psychology and History residential to Vienna.
Students visited a number of important sites that really brought their academic learning to life, including Freud’s house, St Michaels Catacombs and the Judenplatz museum. One of the most memorable trips included a visit to Narrenturm. Built in 1784, it is Europe’s oldest building for the accommodation for those deemed mentally ill and is now home to Vienna’s Federal Pathologic-Anatomical museum.
On the last day, students visited Mauthausen Concentration Camp and saw the infamous quarry where many political prisoners were worked to their death. Students had the chance to witness the conditions first hand and see the impact this has had on the local town even to this day.
It was a fantastic trip and the students made the school proud. Many thanks to all the staff involved.
