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!

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.

Thursday: News of the day
We spent the day in New York. It was cloudy and still breezy from the wind storm last night. A walk through Central Park, down 5th Avenue, by St Patrick s and over to see the first ice skaters of the season.

Central Park

Lunch at Times Square, then on to the Broadway musical: The Phantom of the Opera. It was a spectacular rendition of the novel by Gaston Leroux. Haunting music and brilliant special effects.
All in all, a great day!
