Over the February half term, 42 gallant Geographers travelled to Italy as part of the Geography Department's annual international residential to Italy.
Volcanic highlights included scaling the summit of Mount Vesuvius and exploring the ancient ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum- Roman towns destroyed by the 79AD eruption.
We explored the carved coastline of Capri and enjoyed the stunning views at the Arco Naturalè. We spent our final day following in the footsteps of the famous Gladiators at the Coliseum in Rome.
Our year 11 Geographers were a credit to themselves and to McAuley and proved that with Geography you really can go places!

Doncaster 1914–18 recently visited Year 8 students to deliver interactive workshops on the First World War and poetry. Doncaster 1914 -18 encourages the people of Doncaster to uncover and share their own First World War stories.
This session explored what life in the trenches was like for the men of Doncaster. Students were encouraged to create their own 'trench' using replica First World War items and copies of objects and material from Doncaster Museum & Archives. They created a trench based on the life of a particular soldier from Doncaster. They also had the chance to get hands-on with real First World War objects and get dressed up in First World War costume and uniforms.
Students also worked with BA (Hons) English students from University Centre Doncaster to design a war poetry lesson. Students were guided through a critical reading of a poem and encouraged them to create their own.
Incredible feedback from students - many thanks to everyone involved!
