Year 7 & 8 voyage à Boulogne

Year 7 and 8 spent their Enrichment Day, on Thursday, in France. After a delayed start, we had a smooth ferry crossing and headed straight to Boulogne Old Town. We looked around the shops and cafés in the sunshine, and several people bought rather stylish berets. Then we visited the Boulangerie where we saw the bread ovens and were shown how they make the dough for the bread. Everyone enjoyed the croissant demonstration with the “scary” boulanger.

Some of the girls were more talented than others at making the croissant shapes! Afterwards, we had a picnic and celebrated Harriet’s birthday. We returned a little early and had another excellent crossing.

The teachers were pleased that they received many compliments on our behaviour and uniform kit from everyone we met, including the ferry staff, the coach driver and the mad boulanger!

“Thank you for organising the trip. It was really fun.” Emily P

“My favourite bit was making the croissants with the scary man!” Anastasia B

“I really enjoyed the trip to the boulangerie and making the croissants with the really funny scary man! I found my new nickname ‘petite’; very funny (and true!) and the machines in the bakery were really cool. So thank you very much!” Ellie S
