25 of our Y8 boys avoided Storm Dennis by flying off to the sunshine of Spain’s Costa Brava for a whirl-wind trip during half term. In just four days, the boys explored the culture, heritage, food and language of this beautiful part of the world.
During their stay, the boys visited a Spanish school and spent time with its pupils. We are delighted to say that the friendships they made will continue as the boys will stay in touch and share some of their Spanish work from class with their new friends.
Food, as we know, is always important to boys and during the trip they had a feast of experiences to enjoy. From shopping using their language skills to sampling local delicacies such as churros con chocolate and Turrón (a nougat confection) to cooking up an authentic paella, not to mention the many tasty meals consumed, the boys experienced a true taste of Spanish cuisine.
The boys also enjoyed a day spent touring beautiful Barcelona, taking in Las Ramblas, the Nou Camp football stadium and museum, and La Sagrada Familia.
In between, the boys hit the beach, dipped their toes in the sea (some got considerably wetter than others!), enjoyed games on the beach, partied at the hotel disco, tested out their sporting skills at mini-golf and bowling, and even played a friendly if highly competitive football match against a local Spanish club!
