First Week of Classes Complete!

 

Bon matin,

It is hard to believe it is already Friday and that we set off for our European adventure almost a week ago! In the time that has passed since then, students have been busy both in and outside of class, soaking in glorious Paris. Highlights from this week include visiting iconic Parisien sites such as the Eiffel Tower, Louvre, and Musée d’Orsay. We were also very happy to have a visit from Mr. Sam Blyth, our founder, on Wednesday afternoon at our hotel.

The French classes have been busy completing their Guide touristique assignments, which involve delivering presentations to their classmates at landmarks of their choosing. Students have been trekking all over the city and have visited Père-Lachaise (on the 53rd anniversary of Jim Morrison’s death, no less!), the Arc de Triomphe, and Shakespeare and Co., to name just a few. Our English class read Shakespeare’s King Lear this week and will be moving into short stories and poetry soon. Teachers are very pleased with the engagement and interest of their groups thus far.

This weekend, those who have signed up for the optional excursion at Vimy Ridge will head there on Saturday, and students will also have free time to explore the city at their leisure, catch up on some sleep, and work on their schoolwork before we begin another busy week of classes on Monday.
