Montmartre & Disney

To beat the blues of coming to terms with only having four days left in Paris, we took the Metro up to Montmartre in the 18th arrondissement to have free time for dinner and shopping, then get back together to take the Funicular up to Sacré-Coeur Basilica.

Sacré-Coeur contains many nationalist themes in its architecture and is stunning to look at but interestingly enough, carries many unusual characteristics considering its location and period in which it was built. The site hosts huge amounts of tourists, even in the evening when we visited! We enjoyed the fun and inviting atmosphere of everyone sitting on the steps to Sacré-Coeur, admiring the views at sunset.

Fun fact: many of the most famous French impressionist artists, such as Degas, Renoir, and Monet painted in Montmartre and it is known as the most artistic neighbourhood in Paris!

The next day was our final optional excursion and we couldn’t believe it. Lucky for us, it was a trip to the most magical place on earth: Disneyland! We loved going on all the rides and feeling the magic, but perhaps the most exciting part of the day was seeing the fireworks show at the end of the night. I promised I’d keep it a secret, but a few students definitely shed some tears during the show!

Thank you for your interest in Blyth Academy International Summers.

After careful consultation with our staff and vendors, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all International Summer programs for the 2020 season. Given significant and widespread disruptions to global travel, and the uncertainty of when operations will return to normal, it is simply not possible to plan and operate these programs to our high standards of safety and execution.

If you were planning to leverage our International Summers program to reach ahead and earn a credit over the summer, there are many alternatives available, including Summer School courses at our bricks and mortar Academies, Blyth Academy Online and our newly launched Virtual Summer School.

For more information, or to talk through possible options, please contact the Admissions team via admissions@blytheducation.com or 416-960-3552. The Admissions team can also speak to you about options to complete the current academic year if this is of interest as well.
