Barcelona Trip 2019

On Monday 10th June, 40 students from Manor High School travelled to Barcelona with the MFL department to soak up the language and culture of this beautiful city.

On arrival, students participated in a tapas cookery course and then sat down together to enjoy the meal that they had prepared. Students then travelled to Barcelona FC’s Nou Camp football stadium to learn more about the sporting history of this great club through a visit to the museum and a tour of the world-famous stadium.

Our second day began with a visit to a Spanish secondary school where students attended lessons and learned more about the life of a young person in Spain. Some of our students were even fortunate enough to meet the pen pals with whom they have been corresponding during this academic year.

At Poble Espanyol, students learned more about the unique regional identities of Spain and were able to appreciate the different styles of architecture that have influenced Spain throughout the ages. There was also time to browse the artisan gift shops and pick up some souvenirs for friends and family.

The afternoon was spent enjoying a guided tour of Barcelona’s Olympic stadium that hosted the 1992 Olympics, followed by a visit to the interactive museum. Despite torrential rain, the day would not have been complete without photo opportunities in front of Gaudí’s iconic Sagrada Familia cathedral and a visit to his famous park, Parc Güell.

On our final day the sun finally shone for Manor students, who were treated to a day at Lloret de Mar’s WaterWorld aqua park.

The Modern Languages department would like to thank all students who participated in the trip who were fantastic ambassadors for the school and received compliments wherever we went on their exemplary behaviour.
