L4 French Afternoon

On Friday 2nd May, 2008. L4 enjoyed a French Afternoon. We were all dressed up in blue, white and red t-shirts and denim. We split up into three different groups. One group went to do a wordsearch of French numbers with Mrs Ross. Another group were out in the corridor pretending to be street artists drawing each other. The third group were in the cafe eating their French food like pain chocolate, cheese, baguettes and lots more with Mrs Halliwell. We all enjoyed ourselves and lots of us are hoping to go to France to practise our French!

Fun In Paris

On Friday 14th March, L7 took an 18-hour bus journey to Paris for a week -long holiday. After finally arriving at the hotel, Fiap Jean Monnet, we unpacked and ate dinner, followed by a disco.
On Sunday, there was a trip to the Sacre Coeur, which means Basilica of the sacred heart. A Palm Sunday service was taking place in this church. There was fantastic paintwork on the ceiling and the view from the top steps was beautiful. The group then walked to Montmartre where many had their portraits done, ate crepes and bought caricatures of themselves. Afterwards there was a River Seine boat trip. The class saw Notre Dame, The Louvre and several beautiful stone bridges. After dinner there was a Paris by night tour where the pupils were driven around Paris to see the as famous restaurants and the Eiffel Tower which was all lit up. The next day there was a buzz of excitement in the air as the L7s boarded the bus to go to Euro Disney. Favourite roller coasters among the L7s were space Mountain, Thunder Mountain and Indiana Jones. Space Mountain was by far the scariest and had three loop-de-loops. Surprisingly, though, it had the shortest queue. Thunder Mountain had a huge queue but was ‘well worth the wait’. It went really fast, quickly turned sharp corners and titled to the inside. Indiana Jones also went ‘really fast’ and had one loop-de-loop. The queue was extremely long and took about thirty minutes to get on the roller coaster.

That night the evening activity was bingo. Among the prize winners were Araminta , Callum , Seumus and Antonia .

On Tuesday it was finally the day to see the Eiffel Tower. Although it was rather windy the sun was shining so it did not matter. After waiting in the queue for the lift most were disappointed that they could not climb to the top as it was closed due to high winds. However, they managed to board the lift up to the second floor. The view was ‘stunning’ but it was cold so everyone came down with in thirty minutes. Next was Aqua Boulevard-the water park. Many people marked this outing as the favourite part of the Paris Trip. With outdoor flumes and a wave machine, everyone had a ‘brilliant time’. Many people loved the flumes more than anything else. You can go down flumes on lilos, boats and yellow double lilos. That night there was a disco for Dundee High pupils only and many people boogied the night away.

Finally it was Wednesday and time to tidy up their rooms, pack their bags and head to Calais for shopping before starting the long journey home. The whole experience was brilliant and all of L7 wish the L6s great fun next year!

Mark started his career cycling from Dundee to Oban and then he cycled from the far north of Scotland to Land's End,the furthest away point of England.After that,he conquered the world in a record-breaking 194 days and 17 hours.

His trip started and ended at the Arc De Triomphe in Paris.He sponsered £1 per mile and in total he cycled for a backside-numbing 18,000 miles.Mark had 10 punctures but that did not stop him beating the previous record by three months!

We interviewed Matthew Reid (L6) and asked what he thought about Mark's feat.He said he was "very excited about meeting someone who broke the world record".That view was unanimous among the whole school.Everyone was enthralled by hearing of Mark's adventures.
