Paris Trip 2013 Update

On Thursday 26th September, over 150 year 12 and 13 students, plus staff from Edmonton County School embarked on a team-building trip to the heart of Paris.

With many places to visit and activities to take part in over the three days and two nights, it was an action packed adventure.

Having descended at the Ibis Hotel in Montmartre late Thursday night, getting up at 6:30 the next morning proved to be a shock to the system! However, bleary eyed but ready to take on the day’s excitement, we set off for our first activity of the trip.

Throughout our stay we had several challenges to complete, and with prizes at stake, our competitive streaks certainly kicked in. Each group had their own team mascot, and we managed to take an amazing amount of creative shots of our Pierre le Bear around the city! Armed with our useful but basic French phrases and distant memories of GCSE French, we endeavoured to communicate with staff in museums and attractions, in shops buying obligatory souvenirs, and most important of all, feeding ourselves in restaurants and cafés.

With the purpose of this trip being to bond with our peers, I can honestly say that over this short period of time friendships were strengthened across the year groups. Having been given enough independence in order to fend for ourselves, we achieved far more than we would’ve believed, and returned home full of confidence, ready for the challenges we have yet to come!
