Warninglid school trip to France

In March 1982 a party of 21 children from Warninglid school made a three-day trip to Dieppe where they visited a chateau, a museum and a market. They were encouraged to try speaking in French whenever possible.
They returned to England on the ferryboat "Villandry" and immediately set to work on producing booklets, models and other artwork to record their trip. They also put on a play as can be seen from the stage clothing above.
This culminated in an evening’s entertainment with a French flavour for the parents’ enjoyment.
With many thanks to Don and Yvonne Sinclair for their assistance in identifying the pupils.

Not to be missed is the story of the dramatic storm, and the frantic incidents experienced by the children, much in the style of a Brian Rix farce!
