TRIP TO PENNINGTON (final)

The Final Act

We interviewed the students about what part of the program they liked best. Here are their comments:

Lydiane: it was a dream to see a musical on Broadway.

Lou: I loved everything we’ve done but I particularly enjoyed the Broadway show ! I’ve always dreamed of seeing a musical on Broadway and it was was better than I could ever imagine !

Justine: I enjoyed all of the trip but mostly when we visited the Statue of Liberty and the 9/11 museum. I cried during the movie because it was so sad. I also loved the 6 flags amusement park.

Baptiste: visiting the landmarks in Washington, D.C. on the National Mall because they were all part of American history. Also the 9/11 museum

Juliette: I enjoyed bonding with the other students on our bus rides. Also the Statue of Liberty.

Elisa: The museums of Washington, D.C. because we can learn something in a cool way.

Antonin: New York City. Walking in the streets was like a dream for me. Also the 9/11 museum.

Ewan: The last day in New York City with the 9/11 museum and the Empire State Building. You can t imagine how big the city is until you see it from above.

Evane: Times Square was amazing because it was like a movie but we were actually there!

Lucie: Times Square looks like nothing else I have ever seen

Gaelle: I had a great time with my American host. I also liked Times Square for all the lights. Going to 6 Flags was fun too.

Nous remercions chaleureusement les lycéens, Diane Hart et Glen Daniels pour nous avoir fait partager leur voyage.

prochainement un blog vous sera communiqué…

TRIP TO PENNINGTON (6)

Thursday
Our last trip to NYC.

A sobering experience at the 9/11 Memorial Museum this morning, touring among the debris, the stories of personal tragedies and a film about first responders.

Wall Street and the Empire State Building cheered us up. It was once again a great day for good views at the top. Some of us even found King Kong.

We had a short amount of time shopping among the hustle and bustle of the city.

Goodbye, NYC, we love you!

TRIP TO PENNINGTON (5)

Suite des aventures des lycéens de Bossuet…

Washington D.C. round 2.

A very rainy museum day for all. Some students returned to the Air and Space Museum while others went to the Museum of Natural History.

In any case, everyone found interesting things to do. We had a bit of time to explore Union Station before returning to Pennington. A fun day!

Second week

Washington D.C. round 1

The day started off with a 2 1/2 train ride to our nation s capital. After a luggage drop off at the hotel, Mr Daniels gave a talk about the sights of the day.

Then, off to the White House, the WW2 Memorial, the Vietnam Memorial, and the Lincoln Memorial where we lingered for a long moment.

The afternoon was spent visiting one of the 19 museums of the Smithsonian Institution.
Diner at the Hard Rock Café. Happy BD to Gaëlle!

Thank you so much !

TRIP TO PENNINGTON friday,18th (3)

Hello all of you Bossuet people!


We re just back from another clear and breezy day in NYC. From Liberty Park, NJ we took the ferry to Ellis Island, where we spent the morning. On the way there Mr Daniels gave the students a very thorough lecture on immigration there at the beginning of the 20th century. We were able to see it for ourselves walking through the Registration Hall as well as the various exhibits.


Second ferry stop was of course the Statue of Liberty.
An impressive lady indeed, inside and outside. An added benefit this year was the new museum on the island, where the original crown is displayed.
The students are looking forward to a fun-filled weekend with their families.
