The MFL Department took 49 students to Paris during the last week of term. During the trip, the students visited Christmas Markets where they really got into the spirit and built their confidence by asking for food, drink and souvenirs in French. A few tested out the ice rink while others got involved with other various attractions. They then ambled up the Champs Elysées in search of the restaurant for their evening meal, whilst taking in the pretty lights and the impressive l’Arc de Triomphe. The students rounded off the night with views of the Eiffel Tower. One student said ‘this is the most beautiful moment of my life’ as it began to sparkle. Another added ‘I never thought I’d be able to come somewhere like this’.
The second day was spent in Disneyland and it goes without saying that the students simply adored the atmosphere, especially as the parade passed them by.
A truly wonderful time was had by all. The staff would like to thank and commend such an excellent group of students for being their Best Selves at all times and really embracing new experiences.
