Many ‘bonjours’ and ‘saluts’ have been used, and even though we were on a holiday and we gained quite a lot, the teachers and bus drivers still rewarded us!

    Where we went:

    Monday-We began our trip at 6:30 am. Once we had ‘reached our destination’, (after 7 hours travelling including the channel

    It was also a suitable occasion to remember David Taylor, who died recently, and we're sure he would be looking down on the event with a smile on his face. David was a governor at QE for many years and his serv
