We greeted them as they pulled up to the school, we greeted them with open arms and waving flags. With a short greeting, we all went back to our houses for a long awaited rest.
The first day we had an outing in Kinsale in which we went to Charles fort, where we got an insight into the history of Kinsale. We then had a family afternoon, some of us went to footgolf, an 18 hole course, which everyone enjoyed.
On the Sunday, we had a family day which we spent in Mahon point, at the cinema and shopping.
On the Monday, we had class as normal which the Spanish joined us in. We had Irish dancing with the Spanish also, it was very entertaining and everyone really enjoyed it. The Spanish then departed for Cobh, where they went to The Titanic exhibition and explored the beautiful town of Cobh.
On Tuesday, they went to Blarney castle and kissed the Blarney stone. They then had a day out shopping in cork city and then arrived back at the school, where we all played games like basketball, soccer and tennis when school was finished.
Wednesday was the best day. We all got a bus from the school and went to Inchydoney beach. We got given wet suits and boots and the girls got given the first chance to surf In an Irish sea. Once we were finished surfing it was the guys turn to go surfing. Meanwhile all the girls were on the beach playing things like, rugby, soccer and ultimate Frisbee. Once again we went back to school and played games after school again.
The next day the Spanish had a treasure hunt in cork and went shopping. As it was their last night with us, each of the families did something with their student and spent time together.
On Friday, their last day, we all met at the school early with all their luggage. We said our goodbyes to everyone and watched them get on the bus everyone waved them goodbye as we watched them drive out the gates.
