Y8 Voyage à Paris

7 Nov. 2017 Posted by admin

During the October half term, 73 students went on the annual Year 8 trip to Paris.  The students stayed at the Château de Grande Romaine, on the outskirts of Paris.  At the château, students were able to enjoy a range of activities, from crêpe making to mini Olympics, and even a bin bag fashion show.

The first full day in France gave students an opportunity to try their French skills at a hypermarket and local shops.  With the afternoon being based at the activity centre, students and staff were challenged to abseil the climbing wall and climb up and try the ‘leap of faith’.  For those less keen on heights, their skills were tested on the archery range and their map reading skills were challenged with some orienteering around the site.

The following day, students went into Paris, via the historic market town of Brie Comte Robert.  At the market, students were able to barter with the local stall holders to buy souvenirs for friends and family.  With their purchases made, students headed into Paris and a picnic lunch on a boat ride along the river Seine.  With lunch safely digested, students began the walk up the Eiffel Tower.  They successfully climbed all the way up to the second floor, where they could enjoy the spectacular views out over Paris.

Our final day was the much-anticipated trip to Disneyland Paris.  Students were able to enjoy the many rides, meet the Disney characters and even have their photos taken with them and get their autographs.  The day was much enjoyed by both students and staff.

Once again, the Year 8 students were excellent ambassadors for CSIA and the MFL department is already looking forward to next year’s trip to Paris.
