The trip was packed full of exciting excursions including a visit to the Catalonian history museum, a look around the marina, an insightful tour of the Sagrada Familia and the Parc Guell, to name but a few. Many of our students were shocked at the originality of the Sagrada Familia as they had never seen architecture quite like it before. Meanwhile art enthusiasts were privileged enough to see a whole museum of Picasso's work, which inspired sketches to remind themselves of the experience.
One of the highlights for many of the students on the trip was to see F. C. Barcelona play against Valencia at the impressive Nou Camp stadium. Although unfortunately, they brought Barcelona bad luck! Sitting so high up in the stadium was scary, even for those not afraid of heights. Despite this, the views of the whole stadium were amazing!
Of course, going to Spain was fantastic because of all the delicious delicacies that the students got to try, including tapas and paella. As a special treat, the final dinner was held in the Hard Rock Cafe, full of laughter and reminiscing about the trip.
Overall a great trip that both the students and the teachers thoroughly recommend to all Spanish and Art students in the future! Many thanks to the teachers Mrs Glass, Ms Greenwood and Mr Swaine who made it all possible for the students to go.
