Leaders of the Lower School tour Savannah

Brookwood School’s fifth grade class toured Savannah, G.A. for three days earlier this month.

Their trip began with the exploration of the historic city’s reputable River Street and a ghost tour.

They later enjoyed a trolley tour as well as tours of First African Baptist Church, the National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force, and Battlefield Memorial Park. They ended a fact-filled day with a fun silent disco party. Students danced to music broadcasted through wireless headphones, a favorite of many.

Before their departure, the class indulge in a Civil War Learning Adventure at Whitemarsh Island.

Fifth grade teacher Mrs. Kelli Zolt accompanied her students to Savannah. She said this about the trip: “The Savannah trip is a much anticipated tradition for Brookwood students because they are able to make lifelong memories with each other while being immersed in a city rich with history and culture. From exploring old military forts and reenacting battles to touring the beautiful downtown by trolley and horse-drawn carriage, the trip makes learning come to life for our fifth graders.”
Located in Thomasville, GA, Brookwood School is a private school for grades JK-12. Students benefit from a challenging academic program, fine and performing arts, competitive athletics, and a wide selection of extracurricular activities.
