Paris Trip

Pupils from the Royal Alexandra and Albert School had an unforgettable taste of French culture when they went on a three-day trip to France last week. The trip, which complements their studies in art and French, took in many of the greatest sites in the Paris area.

After crossing the Channel they went straight to Giverny to see Monet’s house and gardens and, continuing the artistic theme, went on to the Musee d’Orsay in Paris in the afternoon. They were then treated to an evening boat trip on the Seine and saw the spectacular view of the Eiffel Tower lit up in the clear night sky. The next day there was a trip to the Stade de France followed by the stunning palace of Versailles where they could admire the architecture and stroll through the beautiful gardens. There was then another visit to the Eiffel Tower, but this time they went to the top of the Tower and enjoyed breathtaking views of Paris by night. During the trip the pupils also visited the Sacre Coeur Basilica, the Roman Catholic Church at the highest point of the City, in Montmartre.

Mrs Danaee, Head of Modern Foreign Languages commented “This trip to Paris has provided the children with inspiration and experiences that will stay with them for life. They have gained first-hand experience of subject material that is relevant to their school studies and have really enjoyed being in a different culture. The pupils were extremely well behaved and a real pleasure to be with.”
