School Trip to Spain: Andalusia and El Puerto de Santa Maria
Oakfield Prep School 16th – 19th May 2017
We were delighted to have Oakfield Preparatory School with us on their primary school trip to Spain. The students were full of life and loved staying together in our sparkville residence where they were well looked after by our chaperone José. The group learned loads of Spanish and had exciting day trips to Cadiz, Sevilla as well as the tour of wonderful El Puerto.
We had a fantastic time with the group and their group leader Patricia and teachers Nell, Joanne, Liz and Anton . We were delighted to see how motivated the students were with using their Spanish, and it was lovely to see them enjoying themselves in the residence. The students were also constantly praised by locals Spaniards for how polite they were which was great to know. Well done to all the students! We hope to be seeing Oakfield and some of their lovely staff next year. ¡Hasta pronto¡
Fue un placer tener los chicos y chicas de Oakfield con nosotros. Con estos estudiantes principiantes de español, hicimos muchas excursiones y visitas interesantes. Fuimos a Sevilla donde hicimos un bonito tour de la Plaza de España y vimos esta preciosa cuidad.
También, estuvimos de tour por nuestro bonito pueblo Puerto de Santa María, donde los alumnos estudiaron un poco sobre la historia de El Puerto y de Cristóbal Colon. Disfrutamos de la visita a la plaza de toros, el catedral y especialmente al castillo. Por la noche hemos dado clases de flamenco y una clase de cocina con la encantadora Iris.
Y por ultimo, visitamos Cádiz, subiendo a la Torre Tavira y disfrutamos de sus vistas impresionantes de todo la bahia de cadiz. Tambien hemos comido chorros alli. Los estudiantes aprendieron sobre la cultura andaluza y sobre nuestros antepasados musulmanes. Fue un viaje muy interesante, los estudiantes tuvieron un primer contacto directo con nuestra cultura y aprendieron algo más de español. ¡Os esperamos veros pronto por aquí!

Lovely residence felt very safe and secure… The paella class was amazing! … Fantastic help with organizing the trip, it was great to feel so prepared before leaving the UK.

It was nice to have a roof terrace here and having meals up there was awesome. It was cool to make our own paella… It was all really great because we went to many places.
