Paris, c’est la vie!
Our Year 7s enjoyed a wonderful few days in Paris. We loved receiving their 'postcard' updates:
Long but fantastic day one! Very pleased with our train journeys! The children played lots of card games and enjoyed munching on their snacks, pretty much throughout the journeys! We met Mehdi our animateur at Gare du Nord and he soon became our favourite person. He is a true Parisian and has great sense of fun! After dropping our bags off at our hostel, we braved the metro and walked through the amazing Jardin des Tuileries, stopped by the Rugby World Cup village and then walked the entire Champs Elysées … but no time to rest yet! We then climbed the (many) stairs of the Arc de Triomphe to finally get a proper view of Paris. What a great start to our trip! Tomorrow we are going up the Tour Eiffel."
Yesterday was such a busy day! We had an amazing private tour of the Stade de France and got to enjoy the changing rooms (last used by the South African rugby team!) and found out lots about the organisation of a stadium; then we had lunch literally opposite Notre Dame, before exploring the Louvre.
We then were treated to a wonderful meal in a restaurant and finished off with the best view of Paris by night from the top of the Tour Montparnasse. We have walked many many kilometres and were glad to find our room and showers at the end of a very long but amazing day!"
