    Executive mansion: earlier this spring, 42 Bermuda High School for Girls Year 6 pupils travelled to Washington DC

On March 30 - April 4, 42 Year 6 girls travelled to Washington DC and Virginia on their first school trip.

The girls visited historical monuments and memorials, museums and then explored Jamestown and Williamsburg to learn more about the early settlers and the important connections to Bermuda. The girls had a wonderful experience, and they were all excellent ambassadors for BHS and Bermuda!

Hannah Taylor said her favourite part was the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum.

She said: “I liked how the planes were hanging from the ceiling, and we got to try space food! We also got to see how people lived in the olden days in Williamsburg and Jamestown which was interesting.

“Being away from your parents may seem scary, but we were too busy to think about it too much!”

Ella Younie and Charlotte Lesage said the first highlight of the trip was going to the zoo.

“We saw many animals like pandas, lions, tigers and elephants. We learnt lots about them and we even caught one of the pandas dancing!

“We also thought that visiting the White House was exciting, although it wasn’t as big as we were expecting. In Williamsburg we played some of the old-fashioned games the children would have played.”
