Trip Diary 2015

It’s over and done with

Cannot believe another France trip has come and gone. On behalf of all the teachers we would like to pass on how great our pupils have been. A real joy to spend time with and a credit to their families and the school. They have done us all very proud, MGS kids are simply the best.

Monday 25th May

We’ve had an excellent day. Started at Bayeux, Connor and Brodie laid a wreath in remembrance. Several of our pupils found the graves of relatives. Once again our pupils have been amazing, very respectful and genuinely interested in the history. This afternoon was spent at Omaha beach, swimming, burying each other in sand, football and rugby. Mcflury’s all round before we get ready for the gangsta disco tonight. We have an early start tomorrow as we are heading to Paris.


Sunday 24th May

A visit to the 360 degree cinema this morning to watch real footage of the D Day landings. The kids apreciated the atmosphere and were a credit to themselves, the school and their community. We followed this with a visit to both the American and the German cemeteries where emotions were high and everyone appreciated the sacrifices that had been made. A very emotional day and a relaxing BBQ tonight.

  2. Hey trippers!!

    Bet you’ve all got the last night blues! Remember them all too well 🙁 I can imagine you’ve got plenty amazing memories to last you.. I know I’ve got plenty that I still get into tears of laughter over with Triple M and Watson 3 years down the line! France is 100% the best trip of your school time (soz 3rd year trips, yous just dinny even put a dent on France, no the same banter eh). Hope my horse is still alive and trotting and someone better have taken him on the boat, he canny get enough of the sightseeing, cultured guy eh, gets all the girls. I hope Smelly Taylor is behaving! I also hope Forgan is still alive… And Watson… Popped into school and passed Mrs Lyall (auntie Val) and I can see from the outside that her heart is breaking she’s missed it this year. Bet there was nae Valerie sung on karaoke night :'(! Anyway have a safe journey back and mind my yearly smurf supply on the way home ;-)!
