Yesterday, Year 8 had an excellent tour around the well-furnished Alexandrian National Museum on Shera Fouad. The students had an overview of the whole Egyptian history from the Old Kingdom to the 20th Century. This broad study has given them a real taste of their own heritage. We rounded off the afternoon with a visit to Chatby ceremony to understand the sacrifice on Egyptian soil of foreign soldiers over the last two centuries. Another great taste of Alexandrian history has given the students a real flavour of the past!
