“For our annual school trip this year, Grade 10 travelled to Berlin, Germany to experience the history and the culture of this massive city. As the capital of Germany, there were so many activities that our entire class did, including visiting a former Stasi prison, where we got a guided tour around the whole place, a seed-ball workshop, where we created balls of mud containing seeds, and later threw them so when the seeds grow, they would grow into flowers.

We also had a graffiti art workshop, where we drew the name of our school onto a part of the Berlin Wall, we did a walking tour over the city, experiencing sights such as Brandenburger Tor, Checkpoint Charlie, and the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe (Holocaust Memorial), where we researched and gave the tour ourselves to our classmates, informing them about the sites. During this trip, we also completed a Service As Action (SasA) project for the organization Young Impact, where people did projects like cleaning a skatepark or handing out free motivation notes to people in the streets, and on this trip, we did a lot of other fun activities such as bowling, and having free time to walk in the Mall of Berlin. Of course, the trip is not complete without a few mishaps, like being stuck in the train for 4 hours before continuing our journey while traveling to Berlin, and losing a student in the public transport (we found them completely okay, no worries), but overall, this trip was an unforgettable experience and journey for us all.”
