Students from Ormiston Sandwell Community Academy head to France

Last week, 42 students from Years 8-10 from Ormiston Sandwell Community Academy (OSCA) spent five days in Brittany in northwest France.

The students had the chance to discover the historical towns of Dinan and Saint-Malo, the seaside towns of Cancale and Dinard, and the magnificent Le Mont Saint-Michel.

The visit allowed students to practise their French, especially their listening and speaking skills, and discover more about the French culture.

During their time there, students had the chance to visit an oyster farm and try some oysters, speak French at a traditional French market, learn about the fortified town of Saint-Malo, and explore the medieval monastery of Le Mont Saint-Michel, a UNESCO world heritage site.

Students also had the opportunity to learn about D-Day during a stop in Arromanches, one of the landing breaches in 1944. 

Marie McMahon, Executive Principal of Ormiston Sandwell Community Academy, said:

"We are so pleased that our students had such an amazing experience on our annual French trip again this year. This is just one of many enrichment opportunities we provide for our students, and I know they really appreciate learning lots and having great fun at the same time!"
