McKee told The Guardian: "i hated what i saw, people rejecting immigrants. we keep saying, in britain and in france, there's not enough room. but instead of saying 'no' we should be asking why they are here."
David McKee, Social Subjects teacher, said: "it was an honour to pay tribute to the fallen and to visit the battlefields. i know that all pupils and staff who attended feel they appreciate the sacrifices made even more now and i am sure this will spark their interest in the history and effects of ww1 further"
