School Trip to Spain: Cadiz, El Puerto de Santa Maria, Sancti Petri and Sevilla
Guildford – July 2023
We were happy to welcome Guildford School in El Puerto de Santa María as our first school group for July ! The group stayed with us in our Spark Residence where they took part in our Spanish classes and learned about the Spanish culture through the cultural activities that the Spark team had organized.
Their trips started on friday with their arrival at Sevilla where they were picked up by the Chaperone. Everyone were then transferred to El Puerto, once arrived to the Spark residence, they all gathered to the rooftop and enjoyed together barbecue. Later, they went to the beach and had some free time by playing games.
On saturday, everyone went to Cadiz. They visited Torre Tavira, ate churros con chocolate, walked through Genovés park and had some free time for shopping or seeing more of the city. Later, they went to the beach and had some free time to relax after a really long day.
Their third day started with a Spanish lesson then the group got ready to walk around El Puerto, where they got to visit the “bodega Osborne”. Everyone then went to the cafetin where they ate churros with chocolate in the center of El Puerto. The afternoon, the group went to Sancti Petri for kayaking, they enjoyed it, it was a really great time. Later that night, they ate tapas at “Lo de Ester”, along with the Chaperone Pedro and the Spark teachers Laura and Inés.
On Monday, they started with the “rota” activities : they had three typical Spanish classes. They made paella, had a Flamenco dance class, and in their Spanish class they made postcards about their trip. After a few rounds, everyone moved to the roof and enjoyed the delicious paella everyone made. After paella, everyone went to the padel Las Marias and had a really fun time in the water. After a really long day, they had their departure ceremony after dinner on the rooftop, with pictures of their stay and everyone got a Spanish certificate.
On their last day they went to Sevilla with the Chaperone, got to visit the Alcazar and the Giralda. At the end of the visit, they went to the airport and took their flight back to the UK.
We enjoyed our time with Guildford here and hope it was a memorable experience for everyone.
