Paris Trip 2017

Thirty–nine Year 7 students went to Paris from 22nd – 25th April 2017. They stayed in a château – the Grande Château Romaine, in Lesigny, just outside Paris. The students had a great time.  We had a day in Paris when we went up Montparnasse (a skyscraper with 56 floors!) to observe the view of Paris, visited the Eiffel Tower, went on a boat trip (Les Bateaux Mouches) on the Seine and then went to Montmartre where we explored the artists’ quarter and saw the Sacre Coeur.
