Paris Trip 2019

6am Friday morning 47 students and 5 teachers left school for a weekend packed with activities in Paris. It started with waving goodbye to the White Cliffs of Dover from the ferry. Then a visit to a chocolate factory before settling in to our accommodation at the Chateau. 2 birthdays celebrated with lots of singing in French and English, cakes and candles! Then going 63 floors up to the top of the Tour Montparnasse and trying to steal the Eiffel Tower, lunch under the Eiffel Tower, a boat trip down the River Seine seeing even more of the sites (including the sad sight of Notre Dame after the fire), seeing behind the scenes at Europe’s largest cinema and becoming extras in our own movie, driving up the Champs Élysées and then round the crazy 8 lane (or more) roundabout around the Arc de Triomphe where no one will insure you!!!! Swimming, silly songs and stories and toasting marshmallows around the bonfire, shopping at the local market, wall climbing, abseiling, archery, buggy building, more swimming, eating snails, strutting our stuff at the disco and then a visit to the hypermarket before finally settling down to watch Mr bean’s holiday en route home.

Thank you to all the students who came, Mr Finch, Mrs Minton, Miss Stober and Mr Khan for making it a really special trip.
