Last Friday saw two coaches full of students headed across the channel for the world-famous Lille Christmas Markets, a couple of hours north of Paris, which were nothing short of spectacular again! Fortunately, the weather was kind to us in the end, and although it was cold it was nothing that delicious hot chocolate couldn’t fix. In fact, we were spoiled for choice in terms of food and drink offerings, with students (and staff!) indulging in crepes, waffles, macarons, and traditional French cheeses!
The trip gave pupils the opportunity to explore how Christmas is celebrated in France and to use their French language skills in a native environment. Another wonderful day was had by all and it really kick-started the festivities for us!
