A French school trip to the Opal Coast offers a fantastic introduction to the French culture!
Your students will love visiting a local bakery, where the baker will explain the importance of bread in the French culture, as well as provide a demonstration.
Other popular visits include Nausicaa sea life centre and Bagatelle theme park. You can even visit a chocolatier! Your students will return home with a much greater understanding of the differences and similarities between French and British culture, as well as an appetite for travel and discovering more about the world around them.
To get the most out of your school trip to the Opal Coast, we would highly recommend an overnight stay. Less tiring and much easier logistically, overnight trips often offer better value for money. Contact us for details!
