I was sure I replied to this yesterday but my comment does not appear to be here. Anyway, what I said was that I suspect this school director does not really want to go on those trips, therefore the Paris attacks are providing a perfect excuse so that he/she does not have to justify this decision with anything more than those few words. Both of my daughters' colleges are treating life as normal and planned trips are going ahead, never having been put on hold, cancelled or whatever other 'excuse' might have arisen. One of the ironies is that use of buses for trips was suspended in some places but, as far as I can make out, the numerous school buses in the morning and evening were not. That seems contradictory to me, no doubt that head would not agree.
