Le Bistrot Pierre Trip

Published on 3rd May 2016

Dear Parent/Carer

Your child has been studying the topic area of ‘Food and Drink’ in their French lessons, and as a result, the Modern Languages Department agree that it would be a positive cultural and linguistic experience for them to have a meal in a French restaurant.

Le Bistrot Pierre (Milton Street in the City Centre) has offered to provide their Prix Fixe menu at cost price, and this would include a main course, a drink and dessert for £10 per head. The staff serving the pupils would be native speakers, and pupils would be expected to converse in French.

The trip is scheduled to take place on Wednesday 18 May 2016 OR Wednesday 25 May 2016. We will confirm the date with your child once places have been allocated. Pupils would be expected to make their own way to and from the restaurant by public transport at their own risk. Pupils will be asked to arrive at the restaurant at 1.50 pm and will be there for approximately one and a half to two hours.

If you wish for your child to take part in the visit, please complete the reply slip below, and return it to Mrs Macfarlane via your child, along with £10 cash or cheque in a named envelope, no later than Wednesday 11th May.

As with all school visits, viability will be dependent on pupil numbers, and should the trip be oversubscribed, names will be pulled from a hat.

Yours sincerely


Mrs Helen Macfarlane
(Teacher of Modern Foreign Languages)

Mrs R Norman
(Acting Head of Modern Foreign Languages)
