Day three

After lessons on Wednesday, the girls had some time to soak up the sun and try some of the local dishes in the cafes along the beach… egg and chips, club sandwiches, Fanta, Coke 😉 All of which gave them the energy they would need to complete the afternoon activity. In pairs, they had to approach real life Spanish people and ask them questions as part of a cultural quiz. The girls learnt a lot from the locals (los malagueños) including the typical flower of Málaga, the traditional dance and the names of some of the members of the Spanish royal family. The joint winners were Lucy, Alex, Natasha and Sally. ¡Enhorabuena!


We headed back to the school once the winners had been announced to cool off and watch a Spanish film, ´A tres metros sobre el cielo´. The girls loved the film so much, Miss Tomlinson had to buy it straight away along with the sequel – screening to be arranged on our return to school.



Day two

A cloudier day was ideal for our afternoon trip to Nerja! We visited the ‘cuevas’ which we learnt were discovered by accident by two boys from a nearby town whilst they were playing one afternoon. Whilst there, we saw naturally formed stalactites and stalagmites, one of which had joined in the middle to form a 32m high column! The girls were brave enough to enter the ‘sala de fantasmas’ (Ghost Chamber) where two skeletons were found when the caves were originally discovered!


We hopped back on the coach to make the short trip to the main town of Nerja where we stood on the ´Balcón de Europa´from which you can see Africa on a clear day. The girls had a wander around the souvenir shops and tried some more delicious flavours of icecream. Phoebe would like to add that she had a wonderful day and the sights were spectacular!

Day one

I am pleased to report that the sun has had his hat on in Málaga today! The girls had their first lesson at school, where they popped balloons to guess descriptions of one another. The rest of the morning was spent on the beach at Pedregallejo soaking up the sunshine and eating our ‘picnic’ before we headed off for our guided tour of the centre. Icecream, shopping and a bus ride completed the day’s activities before the girls returned to their host families to spend the evening.
