Class 7-8 Trip to France

Class Trip to France

Class 7-8 extended their half term break to include a week in the south of France at a water sports activity centre. There they experienced the various challenges of catamaran and pico sailing, surfing and windsurfing, kayaking and Canadian canoeing all packed into a busy week.

These same five days saw the class climb the highest and most spectacular sand dune in Europe, excel at initiative games on the campsite, witness the arrival of a large storm across the Bay of Biscay and tackle a most challenging high ropes course. With plenty of time to chat amongst themselves and practise their ice-cream ordering in French, plus the opportunity to sample frog’s legs, snails and mussels, the class gained a real taste of France during their full week. They returned to school after their experiences, brimming with shared memories and confidence in their newly developed skills.

**UPDATE**

Just received this from Pip Woods, Managing Director of Rockley Watersports: Anthea Chapman recently brought a group of your pupils on a watersports trip to our Le Lac Mimizan centre and I would like to pass the appreciation of all if our staff that thoroughly enjoyed teaching them. The group were well-mannered, enthusiastic, friendly and a credit to your school and we would be delighted to welcome a group back in the future.
