The Modern Languages Department is delighted to announce a planned trip to Normandy and Paris from Wednesday 20th to Thursday 28th June 2018. The trip is open to pupils currently studying or interested in studying French at Ross High School.
We will be travelling to France by coach crossing Dover- Calais and we will be spending 4 days in Normandy at Chateau du Molay which is full-board. We are going to explore this area which was devastated during the second world. On the Saturday we will spend the day in Bayeux and visit its local market. We are also going to Mont St Michel and Alligator Bay for a day. At the chateau we will be having a BBQ, a snail & frog tasting session, and also a disco and karaoke night. At the chateau, there is also a heated swimming pool and different sport activities and other games to take part in.
We will then spend two nights in Paris in a hotel and en-route we will be visiting Stade de France before going on a sightseeing boat on the River Seine. We will spend a day in Paris going up the largest building Tour Montparnasse and go to the artistic quarters of Montmartre and Place de Tertre where there will be lots of opportunities to buy souvenirs and paintings. Last day we will be spending at Parc Asterix- a massive theme park based on the famous French cartoon characters Asterix et Obelix.
The cost of the trip will be no more than £660. Most of the food is included in the price however food en-route is required. Pupils will need some additional spending money. If you would like your son/daughter to take part in this trip, please make sure they collect a letter from a member of the ML department. A signed permission slip and a parental consent form should be returned to the school office by Friday 13th January 2017.
We will then be asking for a non-refundable £60 deposit to secure their place by Wednesday 25 January 2017 to be paid to the school office at registration or at break time.
Thereafter, payments will be made by six instalments of £100 and a letter with these dates will be sent home with your child in due course.
