Magical Paris trip was Très Bien

The magic of Disneyland dazzled Highfields students during a four-day Parisian adventure.

Students and staff said the action-packed trip to the French capital during the half-term break had left them with memories that will last a lifetime.

The trip included visits to The Walt Disney Studios Park and main Disneyland Park, where members of the group braved the famous Tower of Terror and Space Mountain rides, whilst downpours failed to dampen their spirits as they witnessed the colourful Disney Parade and a spectacular fireworks display.

The trip also included a visit to Parc Asterix, where they had a blast on the rides, got soaked on the log flume and had photos taken with Asterix himself.

Miss G Robinson, one of the members of staff who accompanied the group on the trip, said: “After Parc Asterix we made our way back to the Disney Village to get something to eat and buy our souvenirs. Then it was back to the hotel to pack – but not before I let the group eat candyfloss on the coach journey, making for a very funny but noisy ride back.”

Miss Robinson said the 96 students had been a credit to themselves and the school.

She added: “We travelled home from our Parisian adventure on the Thursday and, even with a delay on the journey, each group was fantastically well behaved and a credit to the school. We arrived home just after 9pm to deliver some very exhausted children to their parents and carers.

“It was the most incredible trip and both students and staff have been left with memories to last a lifetime.”
