Auch in diesem Schuljahr haben Sie wieder die Gelegenheit, am Tag der Offenen Tür am 03.03.18 die Englandsprachreise der zukünftigen Jahrgangsstufe 8 mit dem Kauf eines Stück Kuchens zu unterstützen. Das eingesammelte Geld wird zu 100% den Schülerinnen und Schülern zugutekommen.

Hier ein Rückblick auf die Erlebnisse der letzten Sprachreise der Lerngruppen 8 im Oktober 2017. Die Lerngruppe 8ab verreiste vom 08.10. bis 14.10.17 mit den Lehrkräften Frau Falkenberger, Frau Müller und Herr Meisch. Vom 15.10. bis 21.10.17 waren die Lerngruppen 8cd mit den Lehrkräften Frau Bartschat, Frau Beinert und Herr Kuhlins unterwegs. Die Fahrten fanden in Zusammenarbeit mit Panke Sprachreisen statt. Die Jugendlichen hielten ihre Eindrücke unter anderem in travel diaries fest und schrieben auch Reiseberichte.

We met at school in Oberhausen-Rheinhausen at 3:10 a.m. and left at 4:00 a.m. We drove through the Netherlands where we had a break. Thanks to our nice bus driver Sascha we could buy food and drinks in the bus. After the stop in the Netherlands we travelled to Belgium and had another break. Then we drove to France. At the border in France our passports and the bus were checked. Finally we boarded the ferry in Calais. The view was beautiful: We could see the white cliffs of Dover. At 8 p.m. we arrived in Bournemouth where we were welcomed in a friendly way by our English host families.

In the morning we woke up and had breakfast. We ate muesli with milk. Then we walked to the bus stop and waited for the bus. The bus collected the students and drove to school (Cavendish School of English). At school we had four lessons. Then our bus driver Sascha drove us to the centre of Bournemouth. First we walked to the beach. We took photos and had a good time together. After that we had some free time and went shopping in groups. We went to nice shops, for example Zara, Top Shop and Primark. We had a lot of fun. Later the bus collected us again and took us home to our host families. There we had dinner, and then we slept a bit. After this the alarm clock woke us up. We walked to the bus stop, the bus arrived and took us to school. At school we watched the film "Ted" in English with English subtitles. It was fun. Finally we drove home by bus and went to bed.

Our bus left at 8:15 a.m. We drove to Cavendish School where we collected our English guide. At 11 a.m. we arrived in London. First we did a walking tour with our guide. We started our tour at Trafalgar Square. Our guide showed us great sights, for example Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey and Big Ben, and he informed us about the history of these famous places of interest. Then we had free time. Our group walked to the shop M&M's World. Afterwards we decided to walk to the London Eye. During our free time we also went to a park and bought some nice souvenirs.

At 8:05 a.m. in the morning we went to school by bus. We had three lessons there. At 11:20 a.m. our bus driver took us to Portsmouth, a great port city. In Portsmouth we could see the HMS Victory and other famous ships of the past, for example the HMS Warrior. During our free time Acelya, Jana, Likem and I went to a nice outlet store, the Gunwharf Quays. The outlet centre was very big with many restaurants and different shops. We had a nice time in our group. At 4:30 p.m. we travelled back to Bournemouth where we met our host families again and had dinner. At 7 p.m. our bus driver Sascha picked us up again and took us to school. This time Sascha had a special surprise for us: his bus was a party bus with lights, LED, a fog machine and music!
At school there was the highlight of the evening: The karaoke evening with our classmates and teachers! It was very crazy, funny, and cool!

In Portsmouth we visited the HMS Warrior, a big and black warship. The HMS Warrior was built for the Royal Navy in 1859. It was the fastest, largest and most powerful warship in the world when she was launched in 1860. Our group stepped on board this black warship with Ms Falkenberger, Ms Müller and Mr Meisch. We could look at the four decks, the cannons, and saw different rooms in which the people lived. The ship has an iron hull and is 128 meters long. We were really impressed!

Today we made a full day trip to the South Coast. First the bus took us to the Olympic rings in Portland where we took great photos. Our next stop was Chesil Beach. That's a beach where we found some hag stones. (A hag stone is a stone with a natural hole through it. In folk magic traditions a hag stone is a "lucky stone", it protects you from evil forces.) At Chesil Beach I also found a jellyfish and a shark egg. Then we drove to Weymouth, a small town by the sea. The sea was clear and very nice. I have pretty nice pictures. Finally we continued our trip in order to see Durdle Door, the place where a scene from Pirates of the Caribbean was shot.
In the evening we all went bowling in Bournemouth and had a lot of fun.

On our last day we had five lessons at Cavendish School in Bournemouth. At the end we all got a school certificate and were very proud. Then we all walked through the park with old trees. In the city centre we formed groups. During our free time my group went shopping and at 4:30 p.m. we all met again and went to the bus at school. There we got some snacks from school for our long return trip. First we drove by bus for about three hours. Then we boarded the ferry in Dover. After that we travelled by bus again. Finally we arrived in Oberhausen- Rheinhausen at 9 a.m., we were very tired and happy.
