Classe de mer

Olivier left today on his long-awaited class de mer, which, as it sounds, is a trip to the seaside with the whole school.  He's been looking forward to this so he could do some crab fishing along the shore for quite some time.

They are staying in a children's holiday camp a little south-west of us, in the Vendée, at a little town called Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie.

The teacher of his class sent us a little report of events and a picture so the parents would know they'd safely arrived and that all was well.

Bonsoir les parents

Nous sommes bien arrivés après avoir fait bon voyage dans la grisaille. Un beau soleil nous attendait. Le voyage a durée presque 4 heures.

Après le pique-nique pris dans un parc tout près du centre nous avons fait  un jeu de piste. Il fallait répondre a des questions sur St Gilles Croix de Vie.  Les lunettes de soleil et la casquette ont été bien utiles.

Bisous à tous 
L'école Sainte Marie.

Here's the photo she sent: no one here can spot Olly in this picture so don't try too hard.  I reckon he's probably the one clowning around off-camera to the left that everyone is looking at!

  1. I think I can see him, but I'm not sure--you can't actually see the face of whoever it is !
