dd1 was taken to a cemetery by the school today, and saw a dead person

I probably wouldnt mind if it was one of my sons, but dd has recently been through a phase of being v scared of death/dead people. She was fairly upset.
why do the school think its ok to take the children out of the blue? I am pretty cross, but there is no point complaining, it is a bavarian school so the only answer they know is "we know best what is good for your child"

sorry posts xed.
it was the evangelical religion class.
interesting that others apparently find this disturbing as well, I vented to one German person and was more or less told that death is natural and to get over it.
I think it isnt helpful for dd to see the body of someone that she has never met. It makes the death at once less meaningful and more scary.
