Spanish Exchange at BVC

This week, we wished a fond farewell to Spanish students. Year 9, Jess Grant describes the visit.

On 3rd March BVC students hosted the return trip for their Spanish exchanges from Albacete.

We were all really excited to see our partners again as we hadn’t seen them for about 5 months. They arrived at 3.30 just in time to meet us and head home where they spent their 1st evening with their partner’s family’s getting use to our English customs.

On Wednesday they spend the day at the school doing fun activities and experiencing English school life. Activities included tours of the school, being treated to a cream tea, which got mixed opinions from both English and Spanish students, and a PE lesson. After an early start on Thursday the Spanish students spend a day in London sightseeing which they all enjoyed despite our typical British weather. On Friday both English and Spanish students spent the day in Cambridge touring round different Cambridge colleges, shopping, completing a fun scavenger hunt around the city and punting on the river. In the evening students returned home to be entertained by their host families.

During the weekend students were kept busy by their families doing many different activities that included: a birthday party, bowling, sampling pub food, shopping, museums and someone even went indoor skydiving.

Monday came too soon and their final day was spent in school doing different classroom activities with year 8. Tearful farewells marked the end of this year’s Spanish exchange however lifelong friendships and fantastic memories had been made.
