On Thursday 22nd May, 29 members of Year 9 travelled to sunny Spain to spend a week in Barcelona. We stayed in Calella; a small town just south of Barcelona and everyone loved it.
The trip kicked off on the morning of Thursday when we were all piling onto the coach to get to the airport, it was a tiring journey but we got there in the end. When we reached the airport we were all getting excited; we were getting closer to Barcelona. Once we had checked in our bags and gone through Customs, we were on our way to the plane. Once we were off the plane it was back onto the bus and off to the hotel to check in. The travelling took quite a bit of the morning but it was worth it, the sights were phenomenal.
Finally we were at the hotel, everyone was given a room and some time to explore whilst we all settled down, the trip was getting into full swing. The remainder of the day was spent in Calella, on the beach or in a salsa lesson with two professional dancers.
The next few days were jam-packed and very busy; we had called for the bus to take us to Barcelona to revel in the spectacular sights, the Sagrada Familia, the Nou Camp, the home of the Barcelona football team and the Olympic village and the CosmoCaixa science museum. The days were rounded off with bowling and mini golf and shopping.
The last evening was filled with an amazing flamenco performance by professional flamenco dancers which everyone got involved with (even Mr Dance!) It was the perfect ending to the perfect trip.
Everyone had really enjoyed the trip in the end “I loved the whole experience” said one student “The whole trip was amazing and I would definitely go back again”.
A huge thank you to all of the teachers who came with us, Mr Dance, Mrs Clayton and Miss Till, but the biggest thank you goes to Mrs Morgan, who has been on this trip multiple times and has organised it every year.
