Last week 53 students and 6 staff members from South Bromsgrove High went to northern France to sample the culture of this region and perfect their language skills. Despite freezing temperatures, the students enjoyed several planned excursions.  Cultural highlights included a visit to the Natural History Museum in Lille and a tour of the castle in Boulogne. Many excursions had a culinary theme: The students made sweets in the ‘Becasuc’ sweet making factory, sampled ‘gaufres’  in a waffle making factory and they learned to make bread and croissants in a typical French bakery with a very scary French baker. The students did manage to say ‘Bonjour Mickey’ too as the trip included a day in Disneyland Paris. Mrs Rogers, Head of Languages at South, said ‘The students were ambassadors for our school and the community and they will all remember the trip for many years to come’.
