French Trip 2018 - Day 1

Day 1 – The Adventure Begins!

After the fond farewells to friends and family, the Sandye Place Academy voyage to France began at 8.30am as we drove uneventfully to Dover.  As we approached the Dartford crossing some of our misguided crew asked ‘Are we in France yet?’ – parents, rest assured, we have corrected this misconception! After a quick body search of the staff by customs (just joking!) we boarded the ferry and spent a pleasant hour and a half wandering the gangways and spending time on deck.

In under an hour, we arrived at the Chateau and quickly unpacked and found our rooms.  The pupils then spent two free hours playing games outside and settling into their rooms.  Dinner was a delicious meal of spinach soup, followed by pork, vegetables, potatoes, and gravy with a chocolate éclair for dessert.  After dinner the pupils spent an hour making crepes with the staff of the Chateau and as we write are currently playing games outside until the official lights out. Everybody has had a lovely day and we are hoping that they are sufficiently tired to rest well tonight!
