During the last school holidays, a group of Year 9, 10 and 11 students, as well as staff, teachers and parents, travelled to New Caledonia as part of a French excursion held by our school’s very own French teacher, Ms Smallwood.
While there, the students participated in a number of activities, including snorkelling, paddle boarding, canoeing, hiking and swimming. They also spoke French to the locals, visited various tourist attractions, such as the Museum, Marine Aquarium centre and Armadee Island. The students and teachers all had a wonderful time there, with many fond memories and friends being made.
I, personally, went on the New Caledonia trip, along with some other members of NEWSLI, so we could document and describe the events and experiences that occurred there. While this is a brief summary of what actually happened, the memories and lessons that we had gained while over there, will stay with us for the rest of our lives, and this trip will certainly have a special place in my heart.
A very special thank you to Ms Smallwood for her hard work in ensuring that our holiday would be successful and one to remember always.
