With bated breath and with bag and baggage, the classes of 3A, and 2nde 1 spent a week walking in the footsteps of William Shakespeare. The sailing across the Channel was not for the faint-hearted and the students didn’t sleep one wink.
From the modern Shakespeare’s Globe, on the south bank of the River Thames, to his birthplace in Stratford-upon-Avon, (stopping off at Oxford, and its prestigious university and Ashmolean Museum on the way), the students had a great time discovering the wide variety of sandwiches made by the host families, which were so delicous they vanished into thin air.
But you cannot have too much of a good thing, and, after being eaten out of house and home, the host families said ‘good riddance’, and sent our students packing, with a visit to Windsor Castle, the Changing of the Guard, and fish and chips – a dish fit for the Gods, which also vanished into thin air! – on the ferry.
