This just in from Mr. J-Poz, notre meilleur (et seulement!) journaliste:
Quel magnifique weekend!
Sunday the 8th of October, 7:30am, and Clyde road has never felt so quiet. Apart, maybe, from a little group of students playing basketball in the front yard of the school (who would have ever thought such dedication to a school existed). Little by little, the sidewalk took its share of half sleepy, half smily youngsters. What was happening so early on such a lovely morning?
Sunny Donegal awaits
After a particularly quick 4 hour bus ride, the group of 34 students (a record so far), Mrs. Crowley and myself arrived at the Bundoran Adventure Centre. Collie, the manager of the place, gave one of his famous speeches which quickly set the tone. A quick walk and we then arrived at the fanciest Italian restaurant of the town: La Sabbia awaited us! The expertise of the chef from Sicily did not fail our hungry students.
French Flair and Fun
Lots of ropes (and infinitives) were used over these 3 days: to swing, to hold, to walk onto, to pull. Fearless as lions the band of brothers (and sisters) faced many challenges. Rain, of course, was not one of them. They surfed the famous west-coast waves, they teamed up to find their way through a maze of mud and they helped one another in French class to make sure “Madame la prof” would come up with plenty of new challenges for them.
Et c’est déjà fini!
