French Language and Culture Enrichment Tour

18 pupils from St Andrew’s College and The Diocesan School for Girls went on a French Tour from the 24 March to the 5 April. The trip began with a night and a day spent in gorgeous, vibrant Barcelona. The next seven days were spent in Montpellier where the pupils stayed with host families. This gave them the opportunity to learn about the French culture. In the mornings the pupils attended lessons and the afternoons were reserved for tours and cultural activities. Amongst the places we visited were the city of Avignon and Saint-Guilhem-Le-Désert. The last leg of the tour was in Paris. There, the pupils visited two famous museums – the Louvre, which houses the “Mona Lisa” and the Orsay Museum. We also attended a haunted house show where the pupils saw a very different side to their normally very calm teachers. The last activity was a cruise on the Seine River. This was a relaxing way to view some of the most iconic landmarks in Paris such as the Notre Dame Cathedral and the Eiffel Tower. The tour was an enjoyable experience for all and a superb opportunity for the pupils.
