students return from 'unforgettable' visit to Germany
of students from Highbridge's King Alfred School have returned
from a special trip to Germany.
Georgina Fowell from the school's class 10E told Burnham-On-Sea.com
about the highlights of the trip.
pupils got up bright and early to go to Koblenz in Germany. At
5:15am we started our 20 hour journey, yes 20 hours is long but
definitely worth it! We arrived at our nice hotel at 8pm and were
greeted by friendly staff and the smell of spaghetti bolognaise."
the first day we went to Realschule plus an der Untermosel, our
partner school, to spend the day with our German partners who
recently visited us in England. We then headed to Koblenz for
a city tour. We particularly liked where the Mosel and Rhine rivers
met, called the Deutsches Eck (German corner)."
day two we travelled to Cologne, the 3rd biggest city in Germany,
however on the way we stopped off in Bonn at the mother of all
Haribo shops to spend some Euros. Most of us came out with huge
4kg boxes of sweets, it was like heaven. The coach could only
just fit all of the sweets in the hold!"
Cologne we visited the Dom (cathedral), the architecture was mind-blowing!
We then walked over the Hohenzollern Bridge, where there are thousands
of engraved padlocks placed by people to commemorate a special
time in their lives. We left our own little padlock engraved with
KAS and we hope that in 2013 KAS pupils will be able
to find it."
last day was spent in Phantasialand, a theme park where there
were huge rides like the Black Mamba rollercoasters with its loops
and twists but also smaller things for people that werent
keen on that! It was a great day to end a great trip!"
you very much to Miss Hardiment, Mrs Lester and Mr Francis who
made the trip a great laugh and definitely one to remember!"
