France/Germany trip 2016

On Sunday 26th June at 9 o’clock, 44 year 8 students and 5 staff set off from cold, rainy Lincoln for a 5-day trip to Germany, arriving around 18 hours later to glorious sunshine in Triberg in the Black Forest.

Over the next 2 days, we shopped at the beautiful market in Freiburg, got lots of healthy exercise walking up past Germany’s highest natural waterfalls, discovered some of us were not as scared of heights as we thought on the Green Toboggan Run at Todtnau, crossed the border to tour Strasbourg in France, and suffered the highest rate of nosebleeds of any school trip in history, all while improving our language skills through the medium of buying lots of ice-cream!

The highlight of the trip was the final day, when we visited Europapark, Germany’s most magnificent theme park. Soaring temperatures and bright sunshine made for a perfect day of rides, shopping and just relaxing in the sun.

Year 8 were wonderful and attracted positive comment from teachers from other schools at the youth hostel where we stayed, and from the tour guides in Strasbourg among others. They were a credit to themselves and a fantastic time was had by all.
