A group of Neale-Wade Academy students visited Anne Frank's house during a whistle-stop Dutch exchange trip.
The Year 9 pupils spent a day at Neale-Wade’s partner school Anna van Rijn and investigated human rights to prepare themselves for a visit to the Anne Frank House.
The next day, the students went to Amsterdam where they visited the interactive Nemo science museum where they put each other in bubbles and took part in interactive scientific experiments.
The highlight of the visit was a tour of the Anne Frank House where students learnt about Anne Frank and how the Holocaust affected Holland.
The students followed in Anne Frank’s footsteps and walked behind the bookcase that hid her and her family for two years in the secret annex from the Nazis until the day when they were discovered.
Students spent the final day with their host families and were introduced to typical Dutch cuisine such as pancakes, stroopwafels, chocolate sprinkles on toast and speculoos.
