Spanish Exchange to Jerez

Ellie Cheek and Lili McGuire in 10V sent us this report:

“We arrived at the airport in Seville on Thursday 3 November where we travelled to the school in Jerez. As we pulled up and saw our exchange partners waiting with their families, we all were overcome with nervous excitement. After a short hesitation, we got off the coach and met our Spanish families for the first time. We were introduced to the families and then our exchange students took us to the park to get to know each other better. Later that night we went back to our houses for the evening to settle in.

We spent the following day, at the school to experience their daily routine and their way of learning - which was very different as they had three lessons, starting at 8.15am, a half an hour break and another three lessons, making their school day finish at 2.45pm. After school, we walked home (we found this very unusual as they all lived within a 10 minute walk from each other and school) and had lunch whilst getting to know the family further. Later, we all met at Area Sur, the local shopping centre, where we spent the evening shopping, in some familiar and unfamiliar shops and to have dinner.

Over the weekend, we spent time with our exchange partners and their friends, this meant we weren’t all together and did separate things, however I know we all enjoyed our weekend. On Saturday, I went for breakfast and to the beach, watched a basketball match of another Spanish exchange partner, Alejandro, and afterwards went out with other Spanish students. On Sunday, Hannah Bowers, Maddie Geall and I went to an association which supported dyslexia with our exchanges in a small village outside of Jerez. There was plenty of food (as always) and we played basketball and overall had a really lovely day.

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday consisted of three trips of which only the English students took part in whilst our exchange partners were at school. On Monday we visited Seville where we walked round Seville Cathedral, climbed up the Giralda tower and visited Maria Luisa Park. After that, we went back to Jerez to meet our exchanges and spent the evening with them. On Tuesday we visited Cádiz and walked up Torre Tavira, where we were able to enjoy 360° views overlooking the city of Cádiz. We also had lots of free time to shop! When we returned to Jerez, we spent the evening with our exchanges again, as a group in Jerez town. On Wednesday, we went to Jerez town centre and enjoyed Churros in the most popular restaurant in Jerez and then walked through the town to the winery, passing Jerez Cathedral on the way. The winery was very interesting, we learnt about the history of the wine and how it is made, then we had the opportunity to buy some gifts for our parents. As this was our last evening, our exchanges had organized ‘merienda’ (their meal between lunch and dinner) at Andrea’s house. After this, we went out to the park and began to say our goodbyes, to those students who did not have an English exchange partner. After an emotional few goodbyes, we went back to our homes to enjoy the last evening and prepare to go home.

On Thursday morning, we met outside school at 7.30am to say our final goodbyes and thank our families for having us. It was very emotional to depart as we had enjoyed our stay very much. Mrs Ferris had to force us onto the coach as we did not want to leave! 

We all agree that this is the best experience we have had as a part of Invicta and we will never forget it. It has increased our language and cultural knowledge and helped us all to grow as more confident people. We cannot wait for March 2017 when our exchange partners come to England!”

Thank you to Mrs Vincent and Miss Ferris for taking the students to Spain on this exchange.
