Trip Diary 2016

It’s over and done with

All the trip teachers would like to thank our pupils and parents for contributing to making France 2016 a huge success. We have had an awesome time away. We never fail to recognise especially in these situations how wonderful MGS pupils are, they just throw themselves into new situations and get involved. You guys this year again are the best. Well done.

Wednesday 25th May

Last full day for us, cannot believe we are nearly over and done with for another year. Parc Asterix today, sun is out. Water rides this year seem to be faster and wetter as we were all soaking. Everyone has had a ball. Final night out for dinner. Early bed and packing as it’s an early one in the morning.


Tuesday 24th May 2016

First stop Arc De Triomphe. Then split into two groups and the shopping commenced. Rendezvous at the adidas store at the bottom of the Champs Elysees for the walk through the Louvre gardens before lunch. Sun opportunity to spend a little time down time in the gardens before returning to the hotel to get ready for the evening activity on the river boat cruise.


Monday 23rd May 2016

Quick change of plans due to horrendous weather. Instead of lunch under the Eiffel Tower we detoured to the Louvre. Managed a wee shopping opportunity, luckily the sun appears and we were able to get a quick trip up the Sacre Couer. Our fun didn’t stop there a trip up the Eiffel Tower


Sunday 22nd May 2016

Headed to Bayeaux to go to British Cemetery, where we laid  a wreath. The pupils took a real interest and did us proud as always. After the emotions of the morning, we had dry weather so took our chances and went to Omaha Beach. Some were brave enough to swim in the sea, followed by big game of rounders when it got very competitive. Then a treat trip to McDonald’s.  In the evening the where’s Wally disco was a great success with a huge effort from everyone with the fancy dress!  We’re off to Paris in the morning!


Saturday 21st May 2016

Today we went to Bayeaux market and visited the American and German cemetery, it was very emotional and overwhelming. Rocked it on the karaoke tonight, what we lack in ability we make up in confidence. Then Miss Morris and Miss Clydesdale went riding on the horses Miss Clydesdale looked like the run away bride. Love from Samantha and Rachel x


Friday 20th May 2016
