Student’s Trip to Paris

We were extremely pleased this academic year to be able to offer students the opportunity to take part in a cultural and linguistic trip to Paris.

This trip was offered to all current 5th year students who study French at St. Brigid’s. A willingness to participate in all activities with a language element was essential. The trip itinerary is included below with many different activities available to the students.

This exciting opportunity included the following;

•         Dublin/Paris return on scheduled airline services. (Outgoing flight from Cork and incoming flight into Dublin)

•         One small item of hand luggage

•         One item of luggage per person

•         3 nights B&B hotel accommodation in Paris

•         1 evening meal served in Planet Hollywood

•         Exclusive use of a coach for the duration of your tour

•         Guided sightseeing tour of Paris

•         Bateaux Mouches boat trip on the River Seine

•         Entrance to Disneyland Paris - one day/two parks

•         Visit the Louvre museum

•         Visit the Eiffel Tower

There were lots of opportunities to use French on this trip and students were provided with a booklet which enabled them to learn some interesting facts about the places that we visited prior to going on the trip.

Our school trip to Paris is a fantastic option for a number of reasons. Paris is a city with many world-renowned landmarks and monuments dotted around the city centre, from the Arc de Triomphe and Champs-Elysees to the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame Cathedral. The students have a chance to be fully immersed in the French language and few cities boast a better collection of world-class museums and galleries than Paris. Visiting the Louvre, or the picturesque hills of Montmartre that have been a home for many great artists, writers and musicians in recent history: Salvador Dali, Vincent van Gogh and Ernest Hemingway, to name a few is an amazing cross-curricular opportunity. Our school trip Paris has a huge language focus, and there is no better place to immerse students in French culture and captivate their imagination than the country’s capital.
