One thing that was missing at Bishop Luffa until now was a host family exchange with our partner school from Spain!
It was wonderful to have our Spanish friends with us for a whole week and share great memories with them. The photos below speak for themselves - the enthusiasm was in the air and the experience also taught our students a little bit more about other cultures. Our students really enjoyed showing their Spanish friends their school, their hometown and surroundings, and our beautiful beaches. They say this experience has also made them bond as a group. Our visitors also had a wonderful experience and wanted to share with us a few comments to thank the school and the host families for their fantastic care and hospitality. They are looking forward to repeating the experience again and we are looking forward to paying them a visit in June!
This exchange has been an unforgettable experience, my host family and penpal have been very kind and great hosters. I learnt a lot about the city and its traditions and I have lived incredible moments with other students at Bishop Luffa.
Love, Lucía López.
Greetings from Tenerife! I want to start by thanking everyone at Bishop Luffa for this experience. This week has been incredible, the people were super nice and Eleanor and her parents were very caring and made me feel part of their family. I hope to see everyone I met here again. Noa.
This has been an incredible experience. Everything I have seen and lived this week has been amazing and unforgettable at the same time. I loved the school, the family and the places I have visited and I would like to come back again one day.
I loved my experience visiting Chichester, staying with Hanna couldn't have been better. We were really busy doing activities all week, my favourite thing was going to the beach to see the sunset. I hope to see them all again soon.
Lots of love Emily xxx
The experience has been fantastic. The family has been specially kind and warm. I could not have had a better friend. I cannot decide what was the best moment because everything was incredible. Thank you very much for everything.
Love, Ana Lucía
I loved the experience in Chichester, above all I enjoyed the amount of activities that we did all together, especially when we went to the beach. I loved spending time with Ella´s family and I hope I could see them again in the future.
Hugs and kisses, Alba.
I just want to thank you for this awesome experience. It has been a very pleasant week not only with my host family but with all of the English caring and loving people as well.
Love, Eva :)
This experience has been one of the best I've ever had, I've been to beautiful places and I've met amazing people. I am going to miss both the host family and the students at school. I hope to be able to do it again some day.
This week has been a unique experience, one I have never dreamt of. We all had a lovely time and I am looking forward to seeing all of them again in June after this unforgettable week. Thank you very much for this opportunity
I have enjoyed this experience a lot, the family has been always watching out for everything I needed and have made a lot of different plans which I have enjoyed lots!
Without a doubt I would repeat the experience
This week has been an adventure full of new experiences: we have made amazing plans, visited wonderful places, met a lot of fun people and been part of a new and lovely family for a whole week. Thanks for everything, Elena Delgado.
It has been a unique and special experience. I am very thankful for their kindness and everything they did for me. I have met a lot of incredible people that have made this experience unforgettable. I would have never imagined feeling so loved and comfortable with people I hardly knew and that now I am going to miss a lot. They made me feel like part of their family and I am looking forward to seeing them all again.
This whole week has been such a lovely and unforgettable experience, not only for having such an amazing exchange partner, but also for her family and her friends, who were also incredibly caring <3
Lots of love, male
