Y10 Spanish Trip
Fifty three GCSE Spanish students went to the South of Spain for a week. They stayed with Spanish families and followed a 12 hour Spanish language course as well as enjoying cultural visits. They visited Benalmádena Pueblo, Málaga, Mijas and Granada. In Benalmádena they enjoyed a typical Andalucian white village and walked through a pretty garden with beautiful views of the coastline. In Málaga they visited the Alcazaba a Moorish fortress; the largest in Spain, the beautiful cathedral and saw Picasso’s birth place as well as shopping on the main street. On Wednesday afternoon students enjoyed time on the beach, playing volleyball in the warm sunshine. Then it was time to go to Mijas and see another beautiful white village with its own bullring and a small chapel carved into a rock. On Thursday they visited the city of Granada and the stunning Alhambra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Thankfully the students came well prepared for the cold mountain air of Granada as you can see from the Eskimo hoods! They received an outstanding report from their teachers in Spain and returned with improved fluency, I would like to thank them for a great trip and also thank the staff who accompanied the trip Mrs Harris, Miss Lone and Miss Blanco; without whom the trip could not have taken place.
