On Sunday, we visited Paris, starting with Montparnasse (a skyscraper with 56 floors) to observe the great views of Paris! Our students (and staff) were busy capturing photos throughout the day with the gallery below.

Our final day saw a trip to Disneyland Paris where our students enjoyed rides and spending time in the French sun. A highlight being the Rock ‘n’ Rollercoaster which sent everyone’s hair crazy! Read more about this day in a review by Emma in 8T.

“The Paris trip was brilliant as well as Disney being so much fun (except for waiting in line for 45 minutes for some chips). I really enjoyed doing the activities with my friends and making new friends across the period of this trip which I found is going to great when we go back to school. I really enjoyed going to Paris especially when we went to the Eiffel Tower. Disneyland was super fun. After I went on Rock 'n' Rollercoaster 3 times, my hair was crazy (so was all of the teacher's hair especially Mr Ward). Hyperspace Mountain was really fun (even if I was sitting next to a complete stranger). If this trip was ever on again, I would definitely do it again!”
