Campus Corner By ANNA LEE BOLTON Kate Andrews High Coaldale High school students from the County of Lethbridge will long remember their Easter holidays as the most exciting and eventful nine days of their school life. It was spent thousands of miles away from home in France. It all began April 11 when the 13 youngsters left Calgary by chartered DC-10 aircraft for a non-stop flight to the French capital. After disembarking at Le Bourget Airport they were bussed to their hotel in the town of Cergy Pontoise located some 18 miles northwest of Paris Each hotel room at Novotel was furnished with a foot T.V. telephone and double beds. On designated days the students were taken by chartered bus to visit various historical sites in and around Pans. They visited the Palace of a magnificent structure built for Louis XIV and later was the scene of the signing of the Treaty of Versailles in 1919 ending World War 1. The students spent a day at a town about 35 miles from touring the palace that was the summer residence of many French and the site of Napoleon's abdication in 1814. Also visited was the town of Chartres and its 12th century cathedral which is considered one of the outstanding masterpieces of Gothic architecture. Other notable sights included the world-famous Notre Dame Cathedral noted for its flying gargoyles and stained glass the beautiful white marble church of Sacre Coeur high atop the butte in the the largest and richest art museum in the the Arc de the largest triumphal arch in the the towering heights of the Eiffel Les Invalides where Napoleon is the the Champs the Luxembourg Gardens and the colorful Flea Market among others. On free days the students were taken by bus to Place de la Concorde and from there they caught the underground Metro subway to get to virtually every part of Paris proper. The youngsters strolled through the congested crowd-filled street of Blvd. St. Michel in the Latin Quarter and found it lined with book small cafes and ice cream shops. Along Rue Monge they found the ancient ruins of a Roman amphitheatre where a group of French drama students were rehearsing Along the narrow winding Rue they discovered a colorful morning market place selling fruits and vegetables. They saw such famous squares as Place Place Place des Vosges and Place de 1'Italie where Mr. Thibeault resides. They went shopping for bracelets and souvenirs at Le Bon Les Galeries Lafayette and Marche aux Puces. They wandered around ile de la Luxembourg Gardens and Jardin des Plantes as well as Pere LaChaise cemetery where such notables as Balzac and Oscar Wilde are buried.
