School Trip to Spain: Cadiz, Jerez and El Puerto de Santa Maria.
Wycliffe College – March 2023
The last group Spark welcomed in March was Wycliffe College. We enjoyed meeting everyone and making it a memorable experience in El Puerto de Santa María ! The group stayed with us in our wonderful Spark Residence where they took part in our Spanish classes and learned about the Spanish culture through the many cultural activities that the Spark team had organized.
They arrived on Thursday night to Gibraltar and were brought to Spark. After the flight and the journey from Malaga to El Puerto, it was time to rest, as the adventure with Spark started the next day.
On Friday, the groups started with an hour of Spanish class and then went to the market to buy the ingredients for the paella they made later that week. They also had a walking tour through El Puerto de Santa Maria, had a walk to the castle and had free time on the beach.
On their third day, they went to Sevilla and visited the city through various historical monuments as the famous Giralda, Alcazar, Plaza de España and the Parque María Luisa. Later, they came back to El Puerto and walked to town to flamenco and had dinner outside.
On Sunday, they went to Conil to do high ropes activities and then also visited Conil centre.
On Monday, they started with an hour of Spanish class and then went to Jerez to visit the Alcazar of Jerez.
On Tuesday, they started with an hour of Spanish class and then had three typical Spanish classes. They made paella, had a Flamenco dance class, and made postcards about their trip. After 3 rounds everyone moved to the roof and enjoyed the delicious paella everyone made. Later that day they visited the beach and had some padel lesson. To finish the day, they went out for tapas.
On Wednesday everyone went to Cadiz on the ferry and saw the Catedral, Torre Tavira, Teatro romano and ate churros con chocolate. After all that, they went back to Spark and had their departure ceremony with pictures of their stay and everyone got a Spanish certificate
On their last day, they had their last breakfast at Spark and went directly to the airport and took their flight back to the UK.
We loved having Wycliffe College here and making it a memorial experience for everyone.
