During the first week of the holidays in May 2017 C21 students had the opportunity to visit Madrid, Spain’s stunning capital city. This was the first visit abroad for XP, and had a focus on Spanish and the Arts.
On their return Students took part in a Celebration of Learning. During this evening students described and explained the journals they had worked on while they were in Madrid. Parents were encouraged to buy their refreshments using the Spanish language, helped by posters and, of course, students.
Students then went on to simply analyse their favourite piece of Art, and talk about the Spanish that they used. This part of the Celebration was completely in Spanish, an opportunity to show off their refined accents.
Below are Azriel, Alex and Zara speaking on the evening and a collection of all the student speeches from the evening with their translation into English.

The date for the Madrid CoL will be Tuesday 4th July, 5.30 until approximately 6.30. This will be an opportunity for your son or daughter to explain their journal work they completed on the visit, including Art and Spanish.
Part of the evening will be in Spanish, and we encourage you to have a go at ordering your refreshments in Spanish too!
Students have spent their final afternoon in Madrid at the Reina Sofia Art Gallery where they have seen the world famous ‘Guernica’ by Pablo Picasso. A stroll through the streets of Madrid has taken them to a farewell meal to Madrid at the Hard Rock Cafe. What a life!
