The 41 children and 5 members of staff travelled to their beachside residence near the historical city of Cartagena. The first full day began with Spanish lessons in preparation for a trip to Cartagena where the pupils took in the breath-taking Roman amphitheatre. The afternoon was filled with fun in the sea including sailing, kayaking, pedalos and even time for building sandcastles. The next day began with more Spanish practice before the morning’s traditional market challenge. An evening of salsa dancing and a Spanish style barbeque finished the day off.
“During the entire trip the children were amazing, they joined in everything, had lots of fun, practiced their Spanish and were a real credit to the school. I must also say how fabulous our Spanish guides were. They took the time to really get to know our children and they made the experience so very enjoyable,” said Mrs Hales, Head of Languages at the Junior School.
