FIFTH MEETING: BARCELONA (SPAIN) 10th – 14th February 2014

The fifth Comenius meeting took place in Barcelona from 1oth to 14th February 2014. We were so happy to host this 5th meeting. Now we will show you some pictures of this meeting while telling you everything we did.

On Monday 10th February the Opening Ceremony opened the 5th Comenius meeting. Here you can see our classmates, Rut and David, presenting the ceremony and our Headmaster, Bruno and The Mayor of Sant Adrià de Besòs delivering their speeches:

We could enjoy the performance from our Greek and Romanian friends as they are a music school. Here you can see them playing:

After the Opening Ceremony we had lunch together in our Comenius Hall. We all had the chance to eat traditional Catalan food. Here we are:

After lunch we started our Musicians’ Workshop in which we all had the chance to find out about a musician from each of the participating countries. It was great fun and we spoke lots of English:

On Tuesday 11th February we visited Barcelona. Our Túrbula students were the guides and showed the Comenius students around Roman and Medieval Barcelona.

After lunch we visited the Music Palace (Palau de la Música Catalana). We all loved it!!!!! It is amazing.

In the afternoon we visited the Town Hall in Sant Adrià de Besòs:

And just to finish off with such a nice day, we had a traditional dance workshop in which we all learnt how to dance a stick dance and a square dance. It was great fun and so nice to see all our different cultures dancing traditional Catalan dances:

On Wednesday 12th February it was Gaudí’s day. We walked around Modernist Barcelona and we showed our friends Park Güell, La Sagrada Família, La Pedrera and Casa Batlló.

In the evening we were ready for the Karaoke and concert from the 70’s and 80’s. Wowwwwwww!!!!! It was amazing!!!!!

On Thursday 13th February we set off for Montserrat. We went up the mountain on the rack railway and there we visited the monastery. Our Batxillerat friends were our guides and we learnt lots of legends and interesting things about Montserrat:

Stacey, our language assistant from Manchester, came with us. We had a whale of a time:

After the visit, we went to a traditional Catalan restaurant in Monistrol called “El Casot”.

Then we went back to Barcelona but we had some time to spend by the seaside.

After such a nice and non-stop day, we had the Farewell Party in which all the families were invited and very kindly brought homemade food for all of us. We also had the chance to enjoy the nice performance of Sant Adrià giants. It was a nice evening full of traditional food and traditional music and dances.

On Friday 13th February it was the day that all our Comenius friends left. Here you can see us when we said bye-bye:

And that was the end of the meeting in Barcelona. We had lots of fun and we made lots of new friends.

THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR COMENIUS FRIENDS FOR SUCH A GREAT TIME TOGETHER!!!!!!!!

HOPE TO SEE YOU SOOOOONNNNNNNNN :) :)
