On Thursday 14th December, 92 students departed for our annual trip to Cologne, Germany led by Miss Tabellion and Miss Perks alongside 9 other members of staff. During this fantastic trip, we had the opportunity to explore several Christmas markets, full of arts and crafts, souvenirs, gifts, food and many more. Some brave ones walked all the way up to the Cathedral top and 509 steps later, we could enjoy the fantastic views of the town and its landmarks.
After some shopping time and delicious German food, we headed to the ice skating rink where students had a fantastic time. Some were definitely practising for “Dancing on Ice” and were simply amazing to watch gliding with their skates. All had fun, novices or not!
When back at the hostel, we furthered the fun through Quiz Night prepared by Miss Perks, which was really good fun!
On Saturday, we had the best time ever at Phantasialand! We went on as many rides as possible and loved the fact that most rides had 5min or less queueing time! How awesome! We had more food, since we could still fit some more in and then left the park at 8pm to return to the hostel to pack and relax.
On Sunday, we sadly left Germany, but went to Holland and bought some sweet treat whilst doing a stop on the motorway and then headed to a chocolate factory in Belgium! How scrumptious! After this, we had a late lunch in Calais and returned home, after what had been a fantastic weekend!
The students were absolutely amazing on the trip and made the school proud whilst abroad! We cannot wait to return next year!
