French Restaurant Trip – Senior Pupils

On Wednesday 14 March, pupils from S4, 5 and 6 were invited to dine at an award-winning French restaurant.

Pupils were greeted by French waiter Richard who welcomed everyone into the restaurant in French. Pupils enjoyed chatting to him and telling them about their experiences learning French and any trips they have been on to French speaking countries. Pupils ordered their drinks in French and were excited to see the buffet arrive.

Everyone was keen to sample les grenouilles and les escargots! They were pleasantly surprised and glad to have tried some traditional French cuisine. Alongside these delicacies, pupils enjoyed boeuf bourguignon, poule à la crème, gratin dauphinois et des légumes. Délicieux!

Pupils loved their French restaurant experience:

‘It was so cute and cosy!’

‘The people were friendly and spoke to us in French’

‘Really flavoursome food. The frogs legs were really good!’

Update from www.renfrewshire.gov.uk

All schools and nurseries will be open tomorrow at normal times. School transport will operate as normal for pupils who travel on the school buses to Park Mains High School from Langbank, Bishopton and Inchinnan.

A huge thanks to the janitorial team at Park Mains High School for all their hard work over the past few days clearing and gritting the car park and footpaths to make sure these areas are safe for staff and pupils on their return.

We look forward to welcoming all staff and pupils back to school tomorrow.
