In June this year we all travelled to Normandy in France. We set off with high expectations for a thoroughly enjoyable trip with fun activities and delicious food and it certainly didn’t disappoint. We spent 4 days exploring this beautiful region in France with a plethora of activities from visiting Mont Saint Michel and Alligator Bay, Arromanches with its D-Day beaches and 360˚cinema to bread making and snail and frogs’ legs tasting ( which some of the boys did with relish!). All the boys and staff had a truly wonderful time and we look forward to running this trip again next year. Here are some comments from some of the boys who took part:
Ocean Caldwell says "My favourite part of the trip was the Chateau where we stayed as we played football in the evening and spent time with our friends, it made us all a lot closer and I’ve made some good friends."
Harry Lobar says "We all really enjoyed the trip to the Mt St Michel, we had to catch a bus as it was over a long bridge and we walked to the very top where we had a tour of the Monastery and some free time shopping."
Zach Baron says "I really enjoyed the French trip and it gave me a real insight into French culture. I loved Alligator Bay because you got very close to them and were able to see the kind of climate they live in (it was very warm!). I also really enjoyed the D-Day beaches and the 360˚ cinema which told us about the landings and how France and Normandy in particular was affected by the Second World War."
