EIGHT children from Bellefield Primary School in Trowbridge dashed to Berlin last week for a special concert to commemorate the Armistice Day centenary.

The Year 6 pupils performed a song they had written for Sir Sebastian Wood, British Ambassador to Germany, at the British Embassy in Berlin.

The children flew by British Airways from Heathrow in London to perform their award-winning song for peace.

The Together Project, a UK–German Centenary Creative Arts Project, had invited young people aged nine to 16 from the UK and Germany to work in partnership, or independently, to produce poetry, art or songs which would create messages of hope and unity for the future.

Bellefield Primary School won the Age 9-11 category with their song ‘Peaceful Land’, which they performed to a distinguished audience and were then awarded a Certificate of Commendation.

The children also went on a guided tour of some of the major Berlin landmarks such as the Berlin Wall, the Brandenburg Gate and Checkpoint Charlie.

Chloe said: “I really enjoyed meeting people at the British Embassy and Lady French was so friendly. I had a really good time.”

Antonio added:”Berlin is a great city and we saw many sights. I would like to go back again one day and spend more time there.”
