Grade 10’s become Parisians
From 26-29 September our grade 10’s have gone for an exciting 4-day adventure, to Paris. This is an important part of their international school experience. Trips and excursions are designed to engage students and get connected on different levels, in a new, exciting environment. What better place than Paris. The focus will be on culture, bonding, well- being, nature, Disney and fun!
Day 1: Galerie La Fayette and Eiffel Tower Light Show
It was an early start. The group left school around 8:00 and arrived in Paris after a short lunch break, around 14:00. The students checked into the hotel and soon left for the city center. They went on a walking tour of Passage Verdeau and then walked to Galerie La Fayette. After some free shopping and dinner, they walked to Bateaux Mouches and then to Place de Trocodero to view the Eiffel Tower light show.
Day 2: Musee L’Armee, Atelier des Lumières and show
The students start off their day by visiting the Musee L’Armee. After lunch they will make their way over to Atelier des Lumières. After dinner at Le Marais/Les Halles the students will go an see the show: “How to become a Parisian in one hour?”.
“The Musee L’Armee can be found at the Hôtel National des Invalides, which hosts many of the French Republic’s ceremonies, houses several museums including the Musée de l’Armée and its many spaces, as well as the tomb of Napoleon I. Standing out in the Parisian landscape with its golden dome, Saint-Louis Cathedral hosts masses and concerts.”
“Located between Bastille and Nation, in a former foundry in the eleventh arrondissement of Paris, the Atelier des Lumières holds monumental immersive exhibitions. Using 140 video projectors and a spatialised sound system, the highly unique multimedia equipment covers a total surface area of 3,300 m², extending from the floors to the ceilings and over walls up to 10 m high.”
