In the 60's I was a pupil at the Pells School and went on a school outing to a town called Middlekerke on the Belgium coast. I remember having such fun bombing up & down the promenade on pedal velos, and footie matches on the beach against other school kids, and the bed-time feast the teachers, Mr Turner, Mr Jackson pretended not to know about. Does anyone else remember those trips ? Shame, I can't remember the hotel name. Does the school still go there, it was a regular event ?

I remember the trip well. The year I went, a group of us got separated and left behind in Ostende. We decided to stick to the coast walk and a few hours later, found our hotel. The police had been alerted, the female staff members were in tears, and Mr Turner and Jackson were mightily relieved!!!!! Happy days.
What I got most out of the visit though was the trip to the war museum. This was the beginning of my passion for history, which I went on to study as a mature student at the University of Sussex.
Thank you Pells School.

Yup also went on the Belgium trip it was brilliant. Seem to recall it was part funded by monies raised from the school play in St. Johns Church Hall. Also remember a teacher called Mr. Tewit spl? (sounds like chewit)

Bang on IdliL, it was part funded by a school play & jumble sales etc. I vaguely recall a Mr Tuit, the name is familiar, but I can't picture him. I remember a Mrs Burgess & Miss Bingham who took Art class, and a lady who supervised in the playgrounds, a lovely, friendly lady, Mrs Brown I think. That trip will stay with me forever, I have so many memories. I only wish I'd owned a camera back then and had photos to look back on. Alas, unfortunately we were too poor to own one. Only just about scraped up the funds to go on the trip !!!

Hi Bomber we must have been there at roughly the same time. I also remember arty Ms. Bingham and also Mrs Burgess. Then there was Daphne Thorpe who lived in the house in the Paddock where we played footy.

Miss Bingham, Miss Burgess, Mr Jackson and Mr Turner all taught me too. But I couldn't go on the Bruges trip. I was gutted.

Yes! also remember being stung by jelly fish and visiting the beach the next day and seeing millions of them washed up on the shoreline. You didn't get that in the Pells Pool. The food was certainly different to what I was used to but was good as was the smell of fresh coffee in the morning... we didn't have coffee in our house...
BTW I shouldn't pay too much attention to the thumbs sign. 'Tis only the local fuggwit at play.

Yes, I recall breakfast was somewhat different to what was the norm at home. It was coffee, or hot chocolate in a bowl, and fresh bread or bread rolls with jam. Not quite a boiled egg or scrambled egg on toast, but I enjoyed it. In those days any food intake was easily burnt off racing up & down that long esplanade by the beach on velos. And the esplanade was long & flat with all those cafes, bars and sweet shops full of foreign treats.

I remember well the assembly before the trip to Belgium where the school sang ' for those in peril on the sea ' very comforting for an 11 year old on their first trip away without their parents

Ok, could all those who have given me the thumbs down explain why. There is nothing controversial in anything I have written. So unless you were there and disagree with what I have said, tell me why.
