Last week, Year 6 have been visiting Kanchanaburi since we are learning about the second world war. Here is a video about our visit to Hell Fire Pass. Hell Fire Pass is where the POWs built the Thai Burma railway.

It was a really thoughtful idea by the teachers to do a minutes silence around the memorial. I think Wynn’s quote/poem was the best because it went from something along the lines of ‘the soldier sleeps his duty done with the dawn his last battle won’. It was really moving.
I felt calm and and very respectful also it was an excellent idea to have the 1 minute silence.
I now know that the POWS were so poor and got very little food. From now on, I will not leave any food left on the plate for lunch because, the POWS haven’t had enough food.
Although the trip to Hellfire Pass was very tiring, it was also very educational and reflective. I think that the most reflective time during the trip was when we all had to stand around the memorial and say reflective things and the minute of silence.
When we were walking through the Hell Fire Pass,I saw how high and deep it was. That made me really know how hard the POWs needed to work. The trip there was really quiet and reflective.
At the Hell Fire Pass we learnt lots of things about the POWs. And their tools are still sticking in the mountain.
although the trip to Hellfire pass was amazing, we still had to respect the POWs who had died building this cutting. It was really hard to imagine how loud it would be back then because when visited Hellfire pass it was very serene. Visiting Hellfire pass was very sad since we had to reflect back.
I felt really calm and peaceful. i cant believe how it was during World War 2.
At the Hell Fire Pass we learnt a lot of things we had a minute to be silent and reflect on the POWs. There are still some tools sticking out from the rocks, maybe that has came from the POWs.
The Hell Fire Pass was very peaceful and it was very educational. We learnt a lot of things about the POWs. Also, we saw lots of tools sticking out of the mountains.
I like walking at hellfire pass and me and Charlie saw a small tunnel on the trail.
Kanchanaburi was the best residential trip that I have ever been to and one of those reasons is Hellfire pass. The weather was in my favour and it was simply a great experience.
