Wednesday 29th June is an INSET day and school will be closed to pupils.
School was out by 3.15pm on Thursday 26th May and most of us spent the rest of the afternoon waiting until midnight so we could get on the road to France. We had to arrive at school on the Thursday night at 11:55pm, prompt! Our suitcases were put on the coach as we got ready for a 16 hour journey, aiming to arrive at the PGL château at 5:30pm the following day. We waved goodbye to our parents and loved ones and we were on our way. When the time came for lights out, we were all tired but everybody was far too excited to sleep!
At lunchtime on the Friday, we stopped in a beautiful town called Honfleur and bought sandwiches and ice cream. The sun was shining and it was scorching hot, which was a lovely surprise! After lunch, it was quite hard getting back onto the coach because it was so hot and stuffy... Thankfully, Miss Farrimond had imposed a ban on stinky food so at least we didn’t have to cope with that too!
Before we left on the trip, we were given the chance to choose our roommates so we were all very excited to get the chance to spend the weekend with our friends, and some of us were able to make new ones! Once we arrived at the PGL château, we were given some free time to unpack and settle into our rooms. All of the rooms had bunk beds and ensuite bathrooms, but we barely spent any time in there because we were so busy with all of the other activities!
