French Homestay

Posted on 3rd March 2014

19 CGS students from year 10 & 12 and two members of staff spent 6 days in Paris from Friday 21 to Wednesday 26 February on a homestay programme.

IMAG0094The group travelled by train to Paris and quickly learnt how to tackle the Paris Métro at rush hour.





We stayed in Brétigny, living with French families in the South of Paris. Using local RER and métro trains, we spent two days exploring Paris, visiting the Musée d’Orsay with its fabulous collection of 19 and early 20th century masterpieces, the Sacré Cœur & Montmartre, the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame and we also went on a boat trip on the Seine… no one fell in, so no one was ‘insane’!
