French Exchange - first day

Today, 28 eager students embarked on the French Exchange trip to Lille. We set off at 9.30 and hit the road in direction of Folkestone to catch a Shuttle train to Calais. We got there with time to spare so decided to take a little break before getting onto the train.

Then, very skilfully, our driver got the coach onto the Shuttle and we waited for the light at the end of the tunnel, knowing that we'd arrived in France.

After a short 1-hour drive, we'd arrived at the school in Lille. Time to meet the French students for the first time.

With the booklets the right way up, it might be more convincing...

More news tomorrow after our first day exploring the streets of Lille.
