Excursion d’une Journée en France

On Friday 23rd June, a group of 32 students and 4 members of staff set off at 4am for Le Touquet in Northern France.

We caught the 7.35am ferry to Calais and then drove down to Boulogne-sur-mer and finally  headed to Le Touquet. En route, we stopped at Etaples war cemetery where we reflected on the young lives lost in the 1st world war.

Next stop was Le Touquet where the girls wandered around the town, shopping and visiting the authentic French patisseries and food shops. The group then met at the beach and made the most of the white sands, strolling along and taking plenty of photographs. The slightly windy conditions meant that there were lots of water sports to see – like windsurfing and paragliding.

Once back on board the coach, the group headed back to Boulogne for lunch at Le Cyrano restaurant, where the crepes were a huge hit with everyone.

At 4pm, the students arrived at Le Fournil Boulangerie ready to be shown how to make croissants and baguettes. The ‘crazy’ but very skilled boulanger had everyone entertained with his sense of humour and much giggling could be heard as each student got to grips with the dough. 

Heading back to Calais, there was enough time to stop off at Auchan Hypermarket, where students were able to look at French produce and buy presents for their families and friends. Unfortunately our ferry was delayed by 45 minutes, but that did not dampen spirits, as everybody snuggled up on the coach for a ‘movie-night’ to pass the time. After quite a choppy crossing and a long day, everybody fell asleep on the coach journey from Dover to St Martha’s. I am happy to say that judging from the comments made by students and their parents, everybody had a great time.  Thank you too, to the staff who accompanied the trip. See you all on the trip next year!!!!!!
