For five years they have studied French but the language was really brought to life last week on a special trip to Paris.

SCHOOL TRIP: Fifth Year French students from St Brigid's Presentation enjoyed a trip to Paris last week.

SCHOOL TRIP: Fifth Year French students from St Brigid's Presentation enjoyed a trip to Paris last week.

Fifth Year French students from St Brigid's Presentation were given the wonderful opportunity to visit the picturesque city for four days.

Two students, Anna Cashman and Abbie C O’Sullivan, gave their account of their four fabulous days in the French capital.

"On this trip we not only developed our conversational French and appreciation of the French culture, but also formed life-long friendships and bonds with the people around us," Anna Cashman said.

"There were a variety of highlights throughout the trip, from viewing the city of Paris from the top of the Arc de Triomphe, enjoying a cruise down the river Seine, visiting the architectural and historical masterpiece that is Palace of Versailles and experiencing French cuisine in local restaurants in the heart of the city."

Another memorable highlight was visiting what they described as "the happiest place on earth", Disneyland Paris and Walt Disney Studios.

"Not all highlights stemmed from the itinerary; evenings spent in the hotel, airport and the bus trip is something we will hold near and dear," Abbie C O’Sullivan added.

"We have studied the French language for the past five years which has made this trip even more anticipated."

Remembering their experiences in France will be a useful point of focus for them in their French oral exam at the end of Sixth Year whilst also allowing them to reminisce about a trip they will never forget. As Audrey Hepburn once said “Paris is always a good idea”.

"Thanks again to all the teachers involved in organising this trip and making it truly unforgettable for all."
