Day 1 

We arrived safely and full of energy.  We met the wonderful In2action staff who quickly got to know us and entertain us.  Afternnoon and evening activities have been completed by all and thoroughly  enjoyed. Dinner was eaten and most welcome by all.  Lots of dancing, sweets eaten and teeth brushed!


The children have made a fantastic start to their trip experience with many children facing new chalenges.  We are proud of them all.  Fingers crossed for a good nights sleep and we will update you all again tomorrow.  Enjoy the photos.

Day 2 

FIrst night went very well, all children slept through until about half past 5 yes

We are amazed at how well the children settled and slept and are all getting ready for breakfast now. 

Further updates later today.


Breakfast was choice of cereal, toast and fruit,  followed by lumch which was tomato soup, baguette or choices from the salad bar.  The children have clearly worked up an appetite from all the activities.  The weatjer is good and the children continue to participate well and challenge themselves.  There is lots of cheering, support and encouragement amonst them and we continue to be very pleased with how well they are doing.

Today's activities are:

  • Waterwars
  • Climbing Wall
  • Crystal Maze
  • Archery
  • Aeroball
  • Body zorbs

Dinner tonight was fish and chips, macaroni cheese and salad bar, followed by delicious ice-cream or sorbets.

Tonight's evening activity, Gameshow, started off really well with fantastic music choices and lots of movement.  In fact, as I write this they are still outdoors and still going strong!  Fingers crossed for another good nights sleep.

Enjoy the photos and we'll see you all tomorrow.

Year 6 Paris Trip 2022

Day 1 Monday 4th April

After a very early start we were off! Eventually got on the ferry around 11:50. Lunch was followed by a very choppy crossing. We eventually landed on French soil at about 14.30 local time. We arrived at our accommodation around 18.30. Everybody got to their room and unpacked. Dinner consisted of French "Bangers & Mash". The children then had a tour of the site followed by evening activities. We have just finished saying prayers and it's lights out! (22.30) We will be up at 07.00 ready for our day in Disney. Good night and God bless.

Day 2 Tuesday 5th April

Apologies, for some reason yesterday's update was deleted so here we go. Children were shattered after a long day travelling. It was a very quiet night. In fact we can't remember it ever being so quiet! After a hearty breakfast we left at 09.00 for Disney, arriving at 10.00 on what was a chilly but dry day. We made our way to our first ride - Tower of Terror - this set the tone for the day! More followed: Phantom Manor, Slinky the Dog, Pirates of the Carribean, Sky Mountain and my personal favourite the Mad Hatter's Tea Cups. We then enjoyed our lunch and later, the Stars Parade. We arrived back to a dinner of chicken and rice with vegetables followed by doughnuts. Evening activities concluded about 21.45 and then off to bed after prayers. A relatively quiet night so up and early today. We will be off to the market to source lunch later. Everybody in good spirits. Good morning and God bless - enjoy your day.

Day 3 Wednesday 6th April

Another quiet night. This morning we headed out after breakfast to visit the market. Each group was given 30 euros to buy all that was needed to provide a sumptious lunch. Each child took it in turn to ask in French exactly what we wanted. The children were really very good. Excellent in fact and were so confident in their use of the language! No fear - it was great to see. The children also used their French to purchase some presents. (Some of you are in for a real treat) .Afternoon activities follwed, taking us up to dinner. EVERYBODY had a shower prior to getting ready for tonight's activity - THE DISCO!!! I'm pleased to say we all survived. (Just) We all gathered for our evening prayers and the children are almost all asleep as I write. Tomorrow it's Paris, so a good night's sleep for everyone is essential. We remembered you all in our prayers together with the rest of our St. Joseph's family. Good night and God bless.
