Wheatley Students Begin their Trip in France!

On Thursday, 15 February, a group of 23 Wheatley students boarded a bus to head to JFK International Airport for the beginning of their nine-day trip to France! Accompanied by Wheatley Teachers Jean-François Henley and Jason Craven—as well as Willets Road nurse Arlene Kuchcicki—the travelers will experience all sorts of French language and cultural experiences.

Here is an update on some of the activity, beginning with the departure. [Thank you to Jean-François Henley, some parents and some students for the photos!]

Day 1: Departure from Wheatley (2/15)

There was a lot of excitement when the end of the day arrived and students were finally able to board the bus for the airport. Many parents came to the school to see their children off!

Day 1: Arrival in France

After a smooth flight and check-in, the students explored the Rue des Martyrs for their first lunch experience. After a wonderful time and satisfying dinner, they took a metro ride to l’Arc de Triomphe. The students climbed up the Arc for nighttime views of the City of Lights and concluded the evening with a walk down the Champs-Elysées.

Day 2: Visiting Paris

On a busy day in Paris, students visited the Eiffel Tower, les Invalides, Notre Dame and then had a sketching tour on Île Saint-Louis. The students then had the time to visit the Louvre followed by dinner in Montmartre (featuring escargots)!
