The teenagers from Brittons Academy in Essex won the film competition with an entertaining video about France. The year 9 class were treated to an all expenses paid tour of Paris; climbing the Eiffel Tower, visiting Notre-Dame and Montmartre, and soaking up Parisian life! The students were delighted to have been part in the competition and wanted to stay longer.
