Wow! 6 days In France, in Paris and Marseille, and yet we all have improved our knowledge of France. We also managed to make it a successful, happy and experiencing trip! We visited many places we had learnt about in French and History lessons including Versailles, Les bateaux mouches, Notre Dame de Paris, Beaubourg Museum and the Eiffel Tower. We enjoyed delicious crepes and ate surprisingly delicious snails in Montmartre. We also had a chance to listen to birds in the country side in the Camargue region and watch a sound and light show in a cave in quarry in Provence! In fact this trip taught us a lot of stuff in addition to what we learned at school. It gave us a chance to use skills and words we learned and apply them in real life situations. It made us become more independent and rely more on ourselves as we had to do the washing up in the youth hostel for example. It also gave us a chance to bond, not only with our friends but with our teachers. El Alssons teachers are always looking for a way to make our days fun: We got lost in a mall, laughed on a Ferris wheel, met a lot of people including a small group of Australians who we now call our friends. The trip was a great success and we can guarantee that every student on the trip had the time of their lives. This trip wouldn’t have been possible and wouldn’t have been amazing without the hard work and effort of the French Department, Mr Hamadi and especially Madame Fabienne for organising the trip and being responsible for 29 students. It also wouldn’t have been possible without Miss Julie and Mr Steve always being on the lookout and always making sure we were okay.
Thank you all staff and students for making this one of the best trips of our life!
