A group of intrepid travellers, with a hunger for History and a thirst for French, enjoyed a fantastic trip to Normandy last month.
Highlights of the educational visit included Honfleur, Bayeux Tapestry, Corseulles-sur-Mer, Juno Beach; the Commonwealth cemetery at Bayeux and American military cemetery and Omaha beach at Colleville; D-Day landing museum and 360 degree cinema at Arromanches and Mont St Michel. They even learnt how to make their own French bread at the Co-Pains Boulangerie – a memory they’ll never baguette! Although some efforts were breader than others!
A selection of photos can be seen here and there will be a full report in the next edition of the Meridian Mail or you could always check out our Twitter account @OMATrips #OMERANormandie2018 to get a flavour of what students got up to on the trip.
Mr Tidy would like to thank the students who went on the trip for their exemplary behaviour and energy and enthusiasm during the trip.
They were a credit to themselves and the academy.”
