  • Roman Shield Wall

    In Year 7 humanities, students have been learning about ancient Rome. As part of the course they looked at early roman campaigns against their arch rivals, Carthage.

It was due to the organisation and bravery of the Roman Legions that allowed Rome to progress from a small city state to an Empire encompassing the entire Mediterranean Sea.
