24/06/2010 BARCELONA TRIP FOR LORETO STUDENTS

A party of 39 students and 5 teachers: Mr Peter Loughran, Mrs Anne McCambridge, Mr Kevin Conroy, Miss Michelle McGarvey and Bean Uí Mhaoláin, from Loreto College Coleraine, Specialist School, last week enjoyed a four-day trip to Barcelona.

The students, all of whom are currently in Year 10 at Loreto, enjoyed a number of varied activities during their stay, as well as having the opportunity to use and improve their Spanish language skills.  The group’s packed itinerary included a trip to the Barcelona Nou Stadium and trial of the Virtual Experience Barcelona, and a trip to the Parc Guell, which offers beautiful views of the city as well as an insight into the works of the artist Antoni Gaudi.  The students and their teachers also spent a full day at the Port Aventura Theme Park, and visited an Aquatic Park in Port Aventura.  They also had the opportunity to explore the city’s Aquarium and the Maremagnum aquatic centre.  Before coming home, the Loreto group visited the Sagrada Familia Cathedral and enjoyed some retail therapy in the city centre.

Mr Peter Loughran, Head of Spanish at Loreto College, expressed the hope that all the students had enjoyed a refreshing insight into Spanish culture, which would inspire them to pursue their studies of the Spanish language even further.
