Educational Field Trip to Paris (April 2016)
Paris: An unforgettable visit to ‘The City of Light’
Learning beyond the confines of the classroom!! This is something we at Kuwait National English School take very seriously and the educational trip to France is further evidence of this ideologue.
Our tour of Paris was a great educational and cultural experience. The students from Kuwait national English School saw the Mona Lisa at the Louvre, Relived their childhood at Disneyland Paris, visited incredible sights in Paris, enjoyed a River Cruise on the Seine and got to see the all-pervading symbol of Paris, The Eiffel Tower.
The tour started with a visit to the majestic Eiffel Tower, once considered the tallest structure in the world. Built in 1889, the Eiffel Tower stands 324 meters above the City of Light. It is a magnificent monument that impresses as one of the world’s greatest engineering wonders. Students were thrilled to have a tour of the first and second levels. In the afternoon, the team proceeded for Seine River Cruise to see the illuminated buildings and bridges of Paris.
Following the cruise, the team headed for The Louvre Museum, the world's greatest art museum. The most famous works from antiquity Michelangelo's Slaves, Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa and works by Raphael, Botticelli, and Titian.
On the final day the students were free for a full day trip to the Disneyland.
These are but a few of the many memories that they will take with them from this trip of a lifetime. Fascinating historical details, the magnificence and majesty of landmarks like the Notre Dame and Montemarte churches and a shopping spree at the Champs Elysees were some of the other great takeaways from this awesome trip. Students grasped intricate details of the French art and architecture of bygone days.
Overall a great adventure and the students are all eagerly looking forward to more such trips.
