Interested in traveling to France?

Upper School French teacher Shannon Bartel, along with chaperones, will be journeying to France this summer with students who are interested in discovering France with their Norfolk Collegiate friends.

Students and chaperones will travel to Paris, the Loire Valley, St. Malo, Mont St. Michel, Bayeux and Normandy. The 10-day trip from June 16-25, 2016, is open to students in grades 10 through 12 and in open to students who are not enrolled in Collegiate’s French classes.

The adventure includes a trip to Paris, where they will visit the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre, and take a trip along the Seine and explore several historical sites. The trip will continue with a bike tour through the Loire Valley where they will visit a few historical castles. After discovering the lives of royalty, they will take to the walled city of St. Malo and the famous Mont St. Michel. For history buffs, the journey continues to beaches of Normandy for an impressive tour through American and French history. 

If you and your student are interested in learning more about the upcoming trip, please join Bartel on Thursday night, Jan. 14, at 5:30 p.m. in the King Boardroom for more information. If you are unable to make the meeting, but would like more information, please contact Bartel at
