June 2015: Memorable trip to France for Year 8

A TRES bon trip to France was enjoyed by 42 Year 8 students from Haslingden High School when they got to sample a range of typically French delacieis including snails and goat’s cheese.  This trip provided a great opportunity to sample French culture and converse with native speakers.

They stayed in Northern France at PGL Le Pré Catelan in Hardelot and visited a host of different places including a bakery where they got to roll their own Croissants and a goat farm.

They got to taste goat’s cheese but it was not to everyone’s liking. Harry Thorpe, 13, found it bitter while is suited 12-year-olds Ellie-Rose Ormerod and Ebony Prentice.

“We went to the biggest aquarium in Europe and they had sharks swimming around,” said Ebony. “That was my highlight of the trip.”

The best bit for Ellie-Rose was the visit to the goat farm where they also got to hug bunnies.

While in France they also held a beach Olympics, played wide games in the forest at night, completed a town trail in Le Touquet and visited a market.
