Year 9 – Prepare to visit Seville, Spain

By 22 April 2022No Comments

On Monday, 54 Year 9 students will be travelling to Seville, Spain to meet their pen pals from our partner school in Seville – Ies Punta Del Verde. In preparation for our trip, the students have stayed behind after school to practise their Spanish speaking skills, and are excited to put them into practice when they arrive.

The students will be in Spain for the week, and will have a jammed packed schedule. Some activities include a river cruise on the Guadalquivir River, a tour of Seville city from our partner school. Students will also visit our partner school, before having a tour of a local food production company to investigate how learning a language can open many different career opportunities. The students are also taking part in a competitive treasure hunt at Maria Luisa Park which has been prepared by our partner school. On the last evening, the students will have a Sharples family meal at a Spanish tapas restaurant with our partner school.

Finally, thank you to the parents/carers who came to our information evening yesterday. Please don’t forget that on Saturday from 09:00am – 11:00am we are running the PCR tests for those students who are not vaccinated against COVID-19. Please come to the Health Hub at Sharples School, and we will be located in the Pavilion.
