News, events and schools' information for families across Bath and West Wiltshire

At the start of November a group of 11 intrepid explorers from Westwood with Iford and Fitzmaurice Primary School in Bradford on Avon donned their sea legs and set sail to Holland as part of Palladian Academy Trust’s residential visit to Holland.

The children went explored the canals on a cruise, visited Nemo, the amazing science museum, the Space Expo and a windmill village where they saw working windmills. They embraced every activity including seeing the real painting of Van Gogh’s Sunflowers – have you ever counted them?  Do you know that there are 16.  We were reliably told that most people can’t find them all!  The children say they had an amazing time and loved everything!

“Overseas trips like Holland enable our children to make new friends, experience new cultures and explore things that they may not do with their families,” said Tracey Dunn, Executive Headteacher.  

“Our trip had something for everyone, science, engineering, art and culture.  It has broaden horizons and enabled children to dream big! Every child has expressed how much they enjoyed themselves.  It was a fabulous experience for all!” /
