Sixth Formers Learn the Spanish Way
Monday, 07 November 2016
Six Year 12 girls and three Year 12 boys enjoyed a Spanish trip to El Puerto de Santa María near Cádiz in Andalusia for 8 days over the half term break.
Miss Irvine from the Girls' Division and Mr Lees from the Boys' Division accompanied the students. Reflecting Miss Irvine said: "This was another successful year with the added bonus of sunshine and a Spanish feast day mid-week. The students had four mornings of lessons and cultural activities in the afternoons and evenings. They stayed in pairs with host families and immersed themselves fully into the Spanish way of life to such an extent that they even started to walk as slowly as the Spanish do which was rather frustrating at times! On the free day we took them to Jérez on the train where we organised a highly competitive treasure hunt and on the last full day, Saturday, we went on the train to Seville where we started at the Reales Alcazares and moved on to the Cathedral and Giralda Tower. The students were a delight and we have received the following report from the owner of Trinity School who organised the lessons, accommodation and majority of activities."
“I was about to write as Mª Carmen Tejada came in this morning to congratulate the two girls she had with her, Hannah and Priya, she was very impressed with them and the amount of Spanish they spoke. The group was fantastic and well behaved in all aspects. I hope they took home some nice memories and miss us a little”.
