41 pupils from S2 set off on Thursday 12 May for an exchange visit to Pessac near Bordeaux. They will all be staying with French families and attending school for part of the time. They will visit Bordeaux, the vineyards of St Emilion, Europe's highest sand dune - 'la dune du Pylat' - and Arcachon. There will be an official reception by the Mayor of Pessac and a joint Franco-Scottish soirée/dance. Our group returns on 20 May, and the French pupils will be with us later in June.
