Last year, 40 Year 9 students and five teachers visited Catalina in the northeast area of Spain. The girls spent three days taking part in cultural, language and fun activities including visiting Barcelona, Gerona, the Dali Museum and Port Aventura. It was a great chance to experience Spanish culture and, of course, to enjoy the lovely weather. Below is a report of the trip by two Year 9 students.
Trip to Catalonia
In July a lucky group of Year 9 students enjoyed a brilliant trip to Spain. We were based in the pretty town of Tossa de Mar with opportunities for souvenir shopping and time for relaxation around the hotel pool. The city of Barcelona was next on our itinerary. We were in awe of the intricate detail and size of La Sagrada Familia. La Pedrera, designed by Gaudi was unlike anything we’d ever seen before and we enjoyed the atmosphere of Las Ramblas with its street performers. Dinner at the Hard Rock Café brought the day to an end. We were up early the next morning to make the most of our trip to Port Aventura, an enormous theme park with immense rollercoasters, which even the teachers were brave enough to ride. This trip comes highly recommended and we would like to thank the teachers who organised it and accompanied us.
