FINALLY! RICHMOND SCHOOL STUDENTS GET BACK TO BRITTANY.

10 July 2023  |  Sven Wardle  |  Posted in:

After a gap of 3 years, due to the pandemic, our first visit back to Brittany took place in June this year. For the 26th year, year 9 and year 7 students discovered the Opal coast and its rich heritage under beautiful sunshine.

Students enjoyed an action packed week, starting with a guided visit of the historical port of Saint Malo. The rest of the week involved a range of activities, including a coastal walk and a guided visit to the largest aquarium in France with its interactive attractions and laboratories for the protection of maritime species. 

Students sampled delicious traditional Breton biscuits at a little factory after learning how the biscuits were made. They also practised their language skills by buying ice creams, interviewing French local people at a market in Treguier  – a beautiful medieval town. 

They enjoyed an afternoon at an Aquapark as well as bowling and games on the beach. The wide variety of  activities and the enthusiasm of our students made this trip a real success. 

The week ended  in Disneyland, Paris where the fireworks celebrating the 30th anniversary of the park were truly magical. 

I would like to thank students, parents and staff involved in making the visit successful. A special thanks to the school Trustees who have always generously supported our trips. I am sure that  students will look back in a few years with very fond memories of their visit to France.
