Boulogne Trip

Boulogne Trip
Year 8s in Boulogne
Tuesday 20th November 2007 by C. Freeman
Year eight students brushed up their French skills during an overnight trip to Boulogne. Highlights included a beach picnic, a visit to the sea life centre and the chance to meet pen pals in a French school.

Staff and students made a pre-dawn start and travelled via the Channel Tunnel. First stop was a French secondary school where many of our 50 students met their pen pals which they'd made during a school link-up. Those without pen-pals soon made some in a spirit of entente cordiale.

Later students took part in a general knowledge quiz, arranged by Mrs Heppell before spending the night at a youth hostel. The next day comprised spending sprees to Boulogne market a hypermarket, a tour of the sea life centre and a beach picnic and football.

As if that wasn't enough excitement the Brooke Weston party got back home in time for the nail-biting England/France Rugby World Cup semi-final, which England won 14 - 9.

Teacher, Mrs Leuchars said; 'It was quite an intensive couple of days but very successful; with students having the chance to see a bit of French life and speak the language in real-life settings.'
