This term our students from Year 10 and 12 had the opportunity to take part on our first Language exchange programme. They spent the week in Tenerife practising their Spanish, living with their Spanish host families and attending school in Spain. As you can imagine, they also had time to have a lot of fun and make amazing memories.
On Thursday night, more students from Year 9 and 10 joined us for a cultural visit. They spent Friday on Nuryana School (our partner school in Tenerife), meeting their pen pals, playing Spanish games and making new friends. We also went to the volcano Teide, visited La Laguna (UNESCO World Heritage) and swam at the beach. They also enjoyed a great "paella" and delicious "churros con chocolate" before we departed to the UK. A weekend packed of fun activities and a great opportunity to practise their Spanish. We cannot wait to come back next year!
Thanks to all the parents and carers who contacted us to thank us. We were very happy to hear that the students had a brilliant time and did not want to come home. What is more, it was great to know that this opportunity had opened their eyes to life beyond Chichester and how useful speaking another language is.
