55 students and 6 teachers travelled to Paris on a French language and Geography trip over the February mid-term break. Students attended daily language classes and then were involved in a variety of activities including a boat trip up the Seine, visits to both Notre Dame and Sacre Coeur cathedrals, a climb to the top of the Eiffel Tower, shopping on the Champs Elysees and the Arc de Triomphe, a tour around the Musee d’Orsay and a visit to a fromagerie west of Paris to see the production of Brie cheese. An enjoyable trip was haad by all.
