Spanish Exchange Visit to Darlington, March 2011

3 04 2011

On Tuesday 22nd March a group of 19 Spanish students and 2 teachers, from our twin school ‘Nuestra Señora de los Desamparados’ in Ibi, arrived in Darlington for a week long exchange visit.  The pupils were hosted by Carmel pupils from Y8 – Y12.  The students visited Durham, Beamish museum and York during their stay.  They also spent a morning in the college and participated in some Y8 Spanish lessons where they taught Carmel pupils some traditional Spanish songs.

The visit was rounded off with a fabulous farewell disco, with the highlight of the night being the ‘Macarena’!  The pupils were sad to say ‘adiós’ but are all looking forward to keeping in touch with their new friends and hopefully having the chance to return to Spain in the near future.
