During the half-term break, 36 Senior School pupils traveled to sunny Spain for an incredible opportunity to practice their Spanish language skills, see the sights, taste the food and experience the culture.
The busy itinerary included orienteering and high ropes in the woods, a Spanish cooking class, flamenco lessons, pitch and putt and an animal hunt. The pupils also spent a day in Barcelona, where they visited La Sagrada Familia, the Mirador de l’Alcalde, and Las Ramblas. On another day, they visited the amazing archeological site of Empuries, where the remains of a Greek city Empòrion coexist with those from the Roman city, Emporiae. In addition to the ruins, the pupils visited a local market, had lunch on the beach and finished the day with a two-hour boat trip.
Amidst all of this activity were plenty of Spanish lessons and, of course, opportunities to hone their Spanish language skills. Take a look at the gallery below for a taste of this amazing experience.
