Y9 Field Trip to Rosetta (Rashid)

Sun, 11/05/2014 - 09:39 -- Lydia Makram

On the 7th May the Year 9 class ventured out to the edge of the Nile where it meets the Mediterranean at Rosetta. They were able to appreciate the vastness and significance of both for the livelihoods for many of their fellow countrymen. They observed basket making, brick making amongst the many other craft and agricultural industries. They visit the Historical sites of Citadel of Qait Bay, with a replica of the Rosetta Stone, museum of the Ottomans to understand the importance their rule had and finished off with a boat ride on the Nile. I’m sure if you ask the pupils about the day they will inform you that they really enjoyed the whole day and learnt enormous amounts to what was the main trading harbor prior to the 18th century in Egypt.
