Wed 28th May & Thurs 29th May

May 30, 2014 by

Wednesday – the day of Europapark :) The sun was shining, it was going to be a great day! After some initial instructions, pupils split up into small groups to explore to their hearts content. Everyone agreed that it was simply an awesome day and that the Silver Star ride was just the best! My personal favourite ride was the Wild Water rafting – great fun!
After a full day at Europapark it was back home for tea and to pack :( However the pupils did squeeze in a bit of disco dancing in the evening.
Thursday saw an early start (wake up at 6am) to have breakfast then leave the Ciarus Hostel to set off for the ferry. After many DVDs, we stopped along the way for lunch (and the obligatory footy kick around) then arrived in Calais at around 4pm. Whilst waiting to board the ferry we had the usual awards ceremony (more details to follow on that in the next post) then finally boarded. Surely not more shopping for tat I hear you cry? Oh yes there was!
We finally, finally arrived back in Thirsk at 11.45pm where pupils were very happy to see their parents again, the bus was cleaned out (Kieran, you left your swimming kit!!) and the Strasbourg trip was thus over for another year! Would I do it again? Of course!! But let me catch up on sleep first!! ;)
