Between the 20th and 24th of March, 41 students studying either Sport or Travel and Tourism enjoyed a residential trip to Barcelona and Salou.
The students enjoyed culture (and shopping!) in Barcelona, as well as a sports and beach day in Salou. Some of the highlights for students included touring Camp Nou, the home of FC Barcelona, Las Ramblas, the Sagrada Familia, a harbour boat ride, and La Boqueria market.
Travel and Tourism tutor, Karen Bates, said, “We had a brilliant trip and the students were great ambassadors to the college, to themselves and to the Sport, Travel and Tourism courses. They learnt and saw some fantastic sites and took part in some great activities whilst we were there. They had an amazing time and learnt a great deal about the Spanish culture and the history of this country. Overall they all really valued and enjoyed the trip and built a great rapport up with each other and the staff which I am sure will continue now they are back at college. It has inspired many of them to travel, to continue in their studies, gain fantastic grades and then pursue a career in their chosen industries. A successful trip all round.”
Travel and Tourism student Georgia Childs said, “This holiday was the best holiday I’ve ever been on without a doubt! Had an amazing time with my friends and teachers and made come remarkable memories. Bring on next year!”
Sport student Jack Elliot said, “I loved meeting the students from Travel and Tourism. I also loved the sun and the different sites. The staff were also really good which made it an even more enjoyable trip.”
